Suspect sought in sex assault on 16-year old



Quote:
NEW WESTMINSTER (NEWS1130) – Transit Police are hoping you can help them find a man they say sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl at the New Westminster SkyTrain station four months ago.

It happened Wednesday, April 24, 2013 when the girl was walking up the stairs to the platform.

Two men walked past her; police say one of them said something to the girl and then fondled her. The two men then laughed and left the station.

Surveillance footage shows the men entered a nearby liquor store after the assault. Video also shows the men originally boarded a train at Stadium SkyTrain Station at about 8:25 p.m.

The suspect is described as a white male, 25 years old, 5’8″-5’9″, and 170-180 lbs. He has very short light brown hair with a receding hair line, was clean shaven, and spoke with a Russian accent.

He wore a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with “HOLLISTER CALIFORNIA” printed on the front, light-coloured jeans and black “skater” style shoes.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call Transit Police at 604-515-8300 or Crime Stoppers.
This happened in April. Dunno why it's taken so long to release more info. Hope someone can recognize this winner. They should unblur his friend, too.

Police go through a lot of investigative steps first before deciding to release suspect images in order to solicit help from the public. Wouldn't want to tip off the criminals too soon. That's why you don't see the police releasing images of every sought-after criminal for every single crime.

You're not. The police are hoping that you know who this guy is and will narc on him. Even if you did remember seeing him 4 months ago, what good will that do for the investigation? They want to identify him. So unless you saw him use a specific bank machine at a specific time or something, you just remembering seeing him might be useless.

More about whether you know him not if you saw him and don't know him

Im sure she told police sometime shortly after the incident, police is slow? maybe thats why they are requesting for help, since they cant seem to find the guy themselves..

there's a good chance this is a "historical" sex assault.

meaning that the victim didn't come forward until now for various reasons.

hope they catch these guys and big dude someone fondles them in jail.
