Surrey RCMP are looking for an unidentified man accused of groping a teen girl last week.

The alleged victim, 17, was walking down the 10200-block of 152nd Street in the Guildford area at around 3:25 p.m. on Thursday when she noticed a man was following her last Thursday.

Once he was close, he asked her for directions before grabbing her from behind and groping her, the police said in a Monday media release.

The victim yelled and the man apologized, but kept assaulting her. He only ran away after the teen punched him, said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
