Police say an arrest has been made in the frightening sexual assault of a nine-year-old girl in Surrey last week.
Donovan Adams, 23, will appear in provincial court today to face charges of kidnapping, sexual assault, sexual interference and committing an indecent act.
RCMP Supt. Trent Rolfe says the suspect was actually arrested Thursday evening, a day after the attack. Charges weren’t laid until today.
Police call this a crime of opportunity with a ground-level window that was left open.
Last week, police reported the child was lured out of her North Surrey family home in the 9900-block of 128 Street, taken to a nearby park and sexually assaulted. She was then left in someone’s backyard before she ran home and alerted her mother.
The forensic unit actually spotted the suspect on surveillance video from the security systems of neighbouring homes.
