>The Mounties are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect after a woman pulled into an alley and sexually assaulted in Surrey, B.C. on Saturday.
>According to the RCMP, the victim was walking near a pathway around 156th Street and 78th Avenue between 10 p.m. and 10:25 p.m. when the stranger grabbed her and attempted to pull her into an alleyway.
>“She was grabbed and dragged into an alley,” Sgt. Tammy Lobb told Global News.

>In a Monday news release, Surrey RCMP said they’re hoping to speak to the two men inside that vehicle, described as a white, four-door sedan — possible a Mazda with a sunroof.
>Investigators are also seeking witnesses who may recall seeing the suspect, described as a South Asian man between 30 and 45 years old, standing five feet 10 inches tall. He had a full beard, and wore a blue turban, a dark-coloured shirt, and shorts.
