Ridge RCMP seek suspect in alleged sexual assault

Teenage girl was taking bus to Maple Ridge from Port Coquitlam.

Ridge Meadows RCMP is seeking to identify a suspect in a sexual assault alleged to have taken place 18 months ago.

In late January, RCMP received a complaint of a sexual assault from a year earlier.

A teenaged girl from Maple Ridge was riding the bus home from Port Coquitlam when she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man.

After exhausting all other investigative avenues, police brought in a forensic sketch artist.
