Delta Police are investigating an alleged sexual assault against two children who were playing on the grounds of South Delta Secondary School in Tsawwassen recently.

According to police, the incident is alleged to have occurred between 3 pm and 3:30 pm on Sunday, December 20.

In a release, police said the children reported a male teenager had been hanging out in the same area as them at the school.

“He then approached the children and started interacting with them. He allegedly tried to grab them by their arms before touching the boys in a sexual manner,” police said. “The suspect is described by the children as an Asian male, aged 15-18, of average height, wearing a red jacket.”

As part of their investigation, police have been canvassing for witnesses and video and conducting interviews.

“We understand news such as this is very concerning to parents, and that’s why we wanted to get this information out quickly. Police just finished conducting a number of key interviews,” said Delta Police spokesperson Cris Leykauf. “Our officers are interested in speaking with a small group of males who were playing basketball nearby – on Sunday afternoon – who may have had interactions with the same male suspect.”

Police are also requesting information, including dashcam footage, from anyone in the area whom police haven’t yet spoken to. Those with information can call 604-946-4411.
