Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in what they say was an unprovoked assault on a Surrey teenager.

Just before noon on Nov. 16, Surrey RCMP say an 18-year-old boy was elbowed in the face “for no apparent reason” in the 13700-block of 72nd Avenue.

The teen, a recent immigrant from Syria, suffered minor injuries.

Surveillance footage of a man believed to be the attacker, boarding a bus, shows a middle-aged man. Police are hoping the public recognizes him and can provide further information.

Police say they have no indication that the assault was racially motivated, but they did make contact with the boy’s family “to offer support and updates.” They say the family’s reaction to hearing from police was surprise and appreciation.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file# 2017-163917, or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.

Missing Garden Hill First Nation teen found dead kilometres from community .
The chief of Garden Hill First Nation says a missing teen has been found dead, about 16 kilometres northwest of her community. Dino Flett confirmed Sunday that Treasure Harper, 17, was found dead after volunteer searchers scoured the countryside after she went missing several days ago. "The family and community are in total shock of the tragedy," said Flett. Posts on social media from searchers show a map where Harper's body was found. As searchers grew nearer, they found she had been shedding her clothing, including her hat and sweater — a possible sign of hypothermia.
