Surrey Mounties are asking for public help in finding the suspect believed responsible for an attack on a security guard.

On June 25 at about 2 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a robbery outside an apartment complex in the 10500 block of 132nd Street.

An on-duty security guard said he was approached by a light skinned black male, who asked to use his flashlight to help him find his keys.

The security guard handed over his flashlight to the suspect who then used the flashlight to assault and rob the security guard of his wallet and cell phone.

The security guard was treated at hospital and released.

The security guard was able to provide a good description of his attacker. With assistance from the RCMP’s Forensic Art Service Section, a composite drawing was produced (see attached).

“Thankfully the security guard will recover from his injuries, however, the Surrey RCMP needs the public’s help in identifying the assailant so we can hold him accountable for his actions,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca. Please quote file #2015-89231.
