Chilliwack RCMP have released the sketch of a man they believe is responsible for the assault of a woman more than a year ago.

The woman was looking for her lost dog in the Fairfield Island area at around 1 a.m. on Nov. 5, 2012 when a lone male approached her and assaulted her.

Subsequent investigation was able to gather sufficient information to have a composite sketch completed of a possible suspect, said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen.

“ The victim was very traumatized by this assault,” he said. “We certainly would like to bring closure to this investigation by identifying the possible suspect. It is believed that the possible suspect lives locally in Chilliwack.”

Anyone with information leading to the identity of the possible suspect is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, or the anonymous tip line at Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
