After the woman was grabbed, she was able to quickly escape the suspect before fleeing from the area on foot.
RCMP officers say the man had black curly hair past his ears, a medium build, approximately 5’10, and was wearing a grey hoody with baggy pants.
“Officers are working with the victim and consulting with a Forensic Sketch artist in order to forward the investigation,” said Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn, in a statement.
“Thankfully the victim was able to escape without any physical injuries, however incidents like these can have a profound and long-lasting impact on victims.”
