Need help to identify a Caucasian man

Police are Asking for Help in Identifying a Suspect

March 14th, 2007, Prince Rupert BC - The Prince Rupert RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in an assault that took place in February. With the help of the victim, an RCMP forensic sketch artist has created a sketch of the suspect, and police are hoping someone in the Prince Rupert area will be able to identify the young man. The incident took place in the 700 block of 7th Ave West, on February 10th at about 5:45pm. This suspect quickly grabbed an eleven year old girl in a sexual manner then fled the area. The suspect is described as:

  • slim build
  • in his late teens or early twenties
  • fair skinned, likely Caucasian
  • he was wearing a beige toque, beige pants, and a dark brown fabric coat with a cream coloured, fluffy inner liner

This assault took place on the Saturday night before the start of the All Native Basketball Tournament and, with all the extra people in town at that time, it’s quite possible that the suspect is not a resident of Prince Rupert but likely that someone in town knows him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cst GARDINER of the Prince Rupert RCMP at 627-0700 or Crimestoppers at 627-8477. Crimestoppers does not require that you leave your name and you may be eligible for a cash reward.
