‘Disturbing trend’ of sexual assault at parties advertised on Facebook

Chilliwack RCMP are alerting parents and teens to a "disturbing trend" of older men advertising parties on Facebook and then sexually assaulting young party-goers.

Chilliwack RCMP are alerting parents and teens to a “disturbing trend” of older men advertising parties on Facebook and then sexually assaulting young party-goers.

Police say a 32-year-old Chilliwack man has been charged after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old girl who attended a party that may have been advertised on Facebook.

“A 32-year-old man inviting you to a party on Facebook should be a huge red flag for anyone,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release.

She said older men will host a party for teenage boys and girls, and supply them with alcohol.

Due to inexperience, the girls pass out and are taken advantage of or sexually assaulted.

“We really want to encourage parents to know where their kids are,and who they are with,” Wolbeck said. “It’s equally important that teens recognize the dangers out there and make good decisions.”

 The Chilliwack man charged with sexual assault was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
