SURREY — Police are asking the public to help them find a suspect after a woman says she was sexually assaulted while sleeping in her car on Monday.

Surrey RCMP say the alleged assault happened between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Monday at Tannery Park located at 10761 Dyke Road.

Police say a woman was asleep inside her vehicle when a man got in and sexually assaulted her. The man took off and drove away in an older model red car after the victim managed to honk her car’s horn during the assault.
