Delta Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man in his 60s who allegedly assaulted a 14-year-old girl this week.
Around 8 am on Thursday, officers were called to the 11600 block of 82nd Avenue in North Delta, after the teen reported that a stranger had grabbed her around the waist as she was walking to school.
