File # 2022-173370

Surrey RCMP is releasing a video of a suspect involved in anti-Asian graffiti in South Surrey and requesting the public’s assistance with identifying him.

On November 13, 2022, Surrey RCMP received a report of graffiti on a residential fence in a footpath at 142 Street and 18A Avenue. Through investigation, it was determined that the incident took place on November 12, 2022 at 7:55 p.m.

Frontline officers located similar graffiti on a nearby elementary school while in the area investigating. As well in September 2022, there was a similar incident of graffiti where the same fence and school were vandalized.

Police are sharing a video of the suspect from the November 12 incident that was captured prior to the camera being spray-painted and are asking for the public’s help with identifying him. The male is wearing a baseball cap with what appears to be a logo on the left side of the brim.

Black and white surveillance video footage shows a suspect at the bottom right corner of the screen, in a walkway bordered by a large hedge. The suspect is wearing a baseball cap with what appears to be a logo on the left side of the brim. The suspect looks up at the camera, looks away for a few seconds, and then looks up again and the top of his fingers are briefly visible holding an item. A clicking sound can be heard, and then something sprays onto the video camera lens, obscuring the picture.


In addition, police are looking for a witness who had a brief interaction with the suspect on November 12 at 7:55 p.m. The witness is described as a woman who was walking her dog on a leash in the opposite direction of the suspect.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
