ABBOTSFORD Police on Friday arrested an 18-year-old South Asian suspect in a sexual assault case.

At 8 p.m. on Monday, a man entered a veterinary clinic in the 32100 block of South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. He engaged the lone female employee in some conversation and began moving closer to her and the service counter.  He then suddenly moved behind the counter and grabbed and groped the 26-year-old woman.  She was able to break free and she yelled at the suspect who quickly fled from the store.  The victim called police.

The suspect is described as a South Asian man in his 20s, about 6 feet tall with a slim build.  The man has dark hair and sideburns.  He was wearing a red jacket with white stripes, black track pants, a light green shirt and white running shoes.
