Mounties on Vancouver Island are searching for a man after a 16-year-old girl reported being sexually assaulted on a hiking trail.
The teenager said she was asked for directions by a man on a bicycle while walking along the Galloping Goose trail near Sooke Road and Happy Valley Road in Langford on July 9.
It was about 1 pm, she said.
After giving the man directions, the girl said he shook her hand and pulled her towards him for a hug.

She explained that she then pushed him away, at which point he thanked her and left the area.
The man is described as:
Indian, with an Indian accent
Between 20 and 30 years old
Wearing a dark puffy jacket with dark jeans and a dark T-shirt
