Police are looking for the public's help with identifying two suspects involved in an alleged sexual assault that occurred last October in Surrey.
Police say a woman working in the sex trade was picked up by two men near King George Boulevard and 105th Avenue on Oct. 18. Police allege she was driven to a secluded area in the 12800 block of Colebrook Road where she was sexually and physically assaulted.
The victim suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local area hospital.
Surrey RCMP officers have secured what they believe to be the culprit's or culprits' DNA.
The first suspect is described as a South Asian male, early- to mid-20s, six feet one inch tall, about 190 to 210 pounds, with a tall, lean build. He was wearing a white hoodie with red strings, blue jeans and dark leather shoes.
The second suspect is described as a South Asian male, early- to mid-20s, about five feet ten inches tall, 200 to 230 pounds, with a stocky build. He was wearing a dark top with a white design on it, dark fitted jeans, white running shoes and a yellow gold chain around his neck.
The vehicle the suspects used is described as a metallic blue, four-door sedan. It’s believed to be an older model — possibly a Honda Civic or Acura — with low profile tires, dark tinted windows, a rear spoiler and rain guards on the rear passenger window.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP Child Abuse & Sexual Offence Unit at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
