Police sketch of grabber

Richmond RCMP have released a forensic sketch of a suspect in a suspicious incident near Whiteside Elementary School.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m. Nov. 15, police responded to a field near Whiteside Elementary School to investigate after a 10-year-old student was allegedly grabbed by a male in his forties or fifties.

“This male was allegedly photographing the area with his cellphone prior to this occurring. The student was running a lap near the field directly south of Whiteside Elementary School. As she was running towards the male, he allegedly grabbed her on the arm,” said Cpl. Dennis Hwang.

“Though the student advised our investigator that she did not feel threatened, the incident is considered unusual and the motive unclear. The police would very much like to locate this individual and speak with him.”

The man is described as an Asian male, five-foot-seven to five-foot-10, with a medium build, clean shaven and with black hair. He was wearing brown pants and a black and blue sweater

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Jason Pickering at 604-278-1212.
