New Westminster police are looking for a man believed to have groped a woman walking in the West End on Wednesday morning.

Police said the woman was walking east in the 1800 block of Seventh Avenue about 11 a.m. when she passed a man who appeared to be urinating.

She kept walking but a couple of blocks later the same man snuck up behind her and groped her in sexual manner. The woman screamed and the man fled.

The suspect is described as Caucasian in his 30s, about five-foot-10, clean shaven and wearing a grey toque, green T-shirt, beige shorts, white running shoes and white socks pulled up to his knees.

Anyone with information about the suspect or incident is asked to call Const. Jaqueline Mula at 604-525-5411 or Crimestoppers 1-800-222-8477.
