Police are looking for a young man who allegedly exposed himself and sexually assaulted a woman walking on Young Road near Cheam Avenue Wednesday night.

“The 21-year-old female victim was allegedly followed and touched in a sexual manner,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

But the victim was able to get away and call police from a nearby residence.

The suspect is described as a white male about 20 years old with a stocky build and standing about 5 feet tall. He has short blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white design on the front, baggy blue jeans and running shoes.

The victim told police she was walking north on Young Road at about 7:45 p.m. when she noticed the young man following her.

“He commented on her body, continued to follow her, and (then) exposed himself to her,” Hollingsworth said.

Given the location of the incident, police believe there may be witnesses and are asking anyone with information – or who have been victims themselves – to call the Chilliwack RCMP detachment at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
