The investigation began on September 22 shortly before 1 p.m. when a Grade 12 student advised she had been approached by a male in a red pickup truck asking if she needed a ride. He approached her a second time and took hold of her arm, releasing her only after she punched him in the face.

He returned to his vehicle and drove away. Langley Serious Crime Unit has assumed conduct of the investigation.
