VANCOUVER – A suspect has been arrested in the sexual assault of a nine-year-old Surrey girl.
Twenty-three-year old Surrey resident, Donovan Adams, is facing charges of kidnapping, sexual assault, sexual interference and an indecent act. Adams is of “no fixed address.”
He is known to police, but is not known to the victim.
“The excellent work by our Special Victims Unit assisted by additional officers in our Major Crime and Investigative Services units along with our Forensic and Video forensic teams led to this investigation progressing as quickly as it did,” says Surrey RCMP Supt. Trent Rolfe. “The Surrey RCMP would like to thank the community for their continued support and cooperation in this investigation. This file remained a top priority for our detachment as we understood the concern the community had regarding public safety since this incident.”
The young girl was lured from her home to a nearby park last week and sexually assaulted. She was lured through her bedroom window and then taken to the yard of a nearby home following the sexual assault.
The girl managed to run back home to her mom who then took her to hospital and called police.
Anyone with further information is asked to call the Surrey RCMP Special Victims Unit at 604-599-0502 and quote file 2014-123662; or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvercrime.ca
