Delta Police are investigating a string of sexual assaults in Tsawwassen.

Police said in all of the cases a teen male ran up to unknown teen girls and women and either grabbed their buttocks or wrapped his arms around them to grope their breasts and waist.  All the assaults happened in the early evening.

The suspect then immediately fled on foot, police said.

The victims were all women in their late teens to early 30s and police believe all the assaults are random in nature.

He has been seen wearing skateboard-type shoes and always wears a hooded sweatshirt.
