Burnaby RCMP's Serious Crimes Unit is investigating a break-in and sexual assault that took place Nov. 15.

The incident took place in a house in northwest Burnaby where a white male entered the home and sexually assaulted a woman inside, according to Supt. Derren Lench in a press release. The victim was not physically injured.

The suspect is described only as a Caucasian male of average height and weight.

"The possibility that this is a stranger-on-stranger sexual assault has not been ruled out."

Police remind the public to secure their homes. Be aware of your surroundings, lock doors and windows, turn on motion-activated lights and ensure security alarms are armed. If you see or hear anything suspicious, call 911.

The investigation is still continuing.

Anyone with any information on the crime is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
