Abbotsford Police investigate sex assault

Abbotsford Police are investigating a report that a woman was sexually assaulted last Monday.

The 18-year-old woman was walking home from work west along George Ferguson Way between 9:30 and 10 p.m. on July 21 when she was grabbed from behind by a man with a knife and dragged into the bush area just north of Clearbrook Library. 

The victim was sexually assaulted by the man, who fled the scene on foot eastbound along George Ferguson Way. 

The victim walked home and the incident was reported to police several days later after she disclosed what had happened to a youth centre worker.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male five foot seven inches tall (170 cm) with a medium build.

He is in his late teens or early 20s, clean shaven and was wearing a dark-coloured hat, light T-shirt and runners.
