Fort St. John RCMP are releasing further details about the suspects wanted in connection with a sexual assault early Sunday morning.

Constable Jackelynn Biller with the RCMP’s serious crime unit says the woman, who is in her early 20s, had been out during the night. She was then walking down the street when she was offered a ride by two men in a lifted, navy blue 2006 or newer Dodge extended cab pickup truck with a loud exhaust.

Biller then says the men took the woman against her will to the end of the 259 Rd. where she was sexually assaulted.

After the assault, police say the female was knocked unconscious and transported to the junction of the 259 Rd. and the Airport Rd.

Once the victim had regained consciousness, she was given a ride home by an unknown female and was later treated at the Fort St. John hospital.

The driver of the vehicle is described as being a Caucasian male in his early to late 40s, between 5’10” and 5’11” in height and balding. He was wearing a black TapouT shirt (a Mixed Martial Arts brand shirt) and glasses at the time of the incident. He also had a tattoo of a sword with a family crest on his left forearm.

The second suspect is also described as a Caucasian male in his early to late 40s, with a goatee, darker hair and a stockier build. He was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans at the time of the incident. He is also described as a smoker.

Biller says the police have obtained video surveillance from various businesses around town and are currently in the process of reviewing the footage. She also says they are interviewing witnesses who had been out with the woman Saturday night.

Police are still hoping to talk to the woman who picked up the victim, as well as anyone who may have seen the vehicle or who was in the area around 102 St. and 105 Ave. between six and six-thirty Sunday morning.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Fort St. John RCMP detachment at 250-787-8100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
