Surrey RCMP are warning parents in the 93rd Avenue and 126th Street area that a sexual predator is using the Internet to lure teenage girls in the area.
A man covering his face with a balaclava was involved in two recent incidents, and he also fits the description of another attacker involved in a sex assault last November.
On Sunday at about 11 p.m. a 17-year-old girl had arranged through the Internet to meet a man she believed was an old acquaintance at Senator Reid Elementary School. Instead, she was met by a man who sexually assaulted her. She called police from a neighbouring house.
Earlier that day, a man brandishing a knife attacked two women in their late teens in the same area.
On Nov. 27, a 16-year-old girl was also assaulted at Senator Reid School by a man she met online.
According to RCMP Const. Bruce Crabb, police suspect the incidents are related.
