North Vancouver RCMP are warning the public after receiving a report Thursday, February 24, of a suspicious male who sexually assaulted a female youth on February 11, at approximately 5:30 p.m. on a trail in the Seymour Heights neighbourhood.
The youth was walking on a trail close to a bridge in Trillium Park near Seymour Heights Elementary School when a male approached her and groped her. She managed to fight off the male and flee.
The male is described as:
- Greying hair
- Brown eyes
- Slim build
- Blue jeans
- Black baseball cap
- Dark blue track jacket
- Blue face mask
- Walking with a small, white dog that was off-leash
- RCMP are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 and ask for Cst. Bams. Anyone who wishes to provide information but who wants to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
This is the second sexual assault reported in North Vancouver on a trail. We reported on another one about one week ago but involved a “Black or south Asian male” suspect.
