Police release sketch of sexual assault suspect

The attack took place Nov. 20 in Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford

The Abbotsford Police Department has released this sketch of a suspect in a Nov. 20th sexual assault at Mill Lake Park.

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) has released a composite sketch of the suspect in a recent sexual assault in Mill Lake Park.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 30 to 40 years old, 5′ 9″ and with dark hair and face stubble.

At the time of the attack, he was wearing dark track pants, white running shoes and a dark hoodie with a circular design on the front.

The assault took place at about 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 20, when a 42-year-old woman left her residence and went for a walk.

She was proceeding south along Bourquin Crescent West when she noticed a man walking behind her in the area of the bus exchange.

The man moved ahead of her and entered the Mill Lake boardwalk.

Moments later, as the woman was about to pass another entrance to the boardwalk, the man jumped out and grabbed her from behind, while pulling her into the park.

The victim was grabbed, groped and struck by the assailant before she was able to push him off balance and run away.

The suspect did not follow her, and she reported the attack to police the following day.

The APD major crime unit is continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
