New suspect details released in stranger attack on girl in Chase

New suspect details released

Police in the Shuswap have released new details about the suspect in a stranger assault involving a young victim last month.

The Chase RCMP says a young girl was tripped by a man waiting in the bushes near the Chase Skate Park on Oct. 14. The suspect tried to physically restrain the girl, but she fought back and got away.

The male was described as tall and thin; dressed all in black with a black hoodie. He wore a black ball cap, and his face was covered by a black mask with a white skull on it.

Since the previous media release, a new detail has emerged regarding the male’s physical appearance — he is believed to have tattoos on his hand(s) which resemble Roman numerals.

Police ask that anyone who may have information about this incident should phone the Chase RCMP detachment at 250-679-3221.
