Nanaimo RCMP are asking the public to help it locate a suspect in a sexual assault.
It took place on Tuesday at around 4:30 PM, and the victim was a 14-year-old girl.
The girl was walking by herself in the area of Tunnah Road and Opal Crescent, when she saw a man approaching.
As he was about to pass, he suddenly grabbed her, and pushed her up against an unknown object, touching her inappropriately.
She managed to push him off, run home, and tell her parents about the incident.
The suspect is described as a white male, in his mid-20’s and 5’8″.
He had pale skin, light coloured stubble on his chin and over his lip, as well as bushy eyebrows, and some acne scarring on his face.
The suspect was also wearing a dark hoodie with a white skater logo, and khaki pants.
Anyone with information should contact Nanaimo Mounties or Crime Stoppers.
