Sketch of SFU grabber

Burnaby RCMP have released a sketch of a man suspected of grabbing a 19-year-old Simon Fraser University student on a trail near the campus.

The woman had gone for a walk Sunday morning and noticed a man following her who tried to engage her in conversation, police say.

The man then allegedly grabbed her by the hand.

The woman was able to pull away and run to a parking lot, where she sought assistance from other people.

But police say the man kept trying to engage the woman before driving off in grey or black four-door Acura.

Police are now hoping to speak to two women who helped the woman shortly after the incident.

They have also released a composite sketch of the suspect who is described as a five-foot-nine South Asian male between the ages of 19 and 23.

He was last seen wearing a black turban, long-sleeve blue shirt, grey sweat pants and black sandals.

Anyone who may be able to identify the suspect is asked to contact police at 604-646-9999.
