A warning to students and residents of Burnaby Mountain, after a sexual assault at SFU’s Burnaby Campus last night.
Burnaby RCMP says it happened around 7:30 p.m., while a woman was walking from class towards the parking lot where she’d left her car.
Police say she heard a noise behind her and then was grabbed by a man.
Investigators say he held her while he sexually assaulted her, before fleeing when he heard voices from passers-by in the area.
Police describe the suspect as a tall male, with a medium to heavy build, a deep unaccented voice, and wearing a long-sleeved hoodie or shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or contact Crime Stoppers if they want to stay anonymous.
