Police are investigating after a youth was sexually assaulted near Parkview Elementary School and Parkland Mall.
Sicamous RCMP say the victim, a 14-year-old youth was walking with their 13-year-old friend when the assault occurred on October 21 at 4:30 pm. They were approached by an unknown man who asked them,
Hey, do you know… Without finishing the sentence, he grabbed the 14-year-old. Both youths began screaming and the man released his grip allowing them to be able to run away.
Police are now looking for the man who is described as;
- no facial hair
He was last seen wearing:
- black toque,
- black zip-up jacket
These youth did everything correctly by screaming and running free. They were able to provide a description of the man. We commend their bravery, says Sgt. Murray McNeil, in charge of the Sicamous RCMP Detachment.
Anyone with information on the incident, or who may have been in the area, is asked to call the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878.
