Langley RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance to identify a suspect who grabbed a teenage girl's breast in Fort Langley on May 16.

A 17-year-old girl took advantage of an extended break at school to go to the docks at Glover and Billy Brown Roads, said police.

Around 12:15 p.m., she sat on one of the small piers to read her book.  A short while later a young man passed by on a bicycle.  He returned about 10 minutes later.

He gave his name as ‘Lucas’ and asked if he could join her, said police.  She didn’t reply so he sat down with her.

They talked for a short time and without warning he reached out and touched her breast, she told police.  She got up to leave and he left westbound down a trail on his bicycle.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, approximately 19 years old, medium build, between 5’5” and 5’6” with curly brown hair, facial stubble, wearing a brown T-shirt and he could have a scar on his forehead.

The victim was able to work with a composite artist and an electronic sketch has been created.  Police are asking the public to study the sketch and if you are able to assist with this investigation in any way, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
