Seeking public assistance in stranger sex assault

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to locate a man in relation to a sexual assault that took place at a northeast restaurant yesterday.

At approximately 5:15 p.m., on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, a 16-year-old female was cleaning the men’s washroom at the Dairy Queen, located at 1906 Centre St. N.E., when she was approached by a man who indicated he wanted to use the washroom. She exited the men’s washroom and began cleaning the women’s washroom.

The man then followed the youth into the women’s washroom and began speaking with her. It is alleged that he then pushed her into a corner of the bathroom and began touching her inappropriately, while holding his hand over her mouth. The victim was able to loosen his grip over her mouth and scream for help. A co-worker entered the bathroom and the man fled the restaurant.

The suspect is described as an Indigenous man in his late 20s, 6’3” tall, with a slim build. He was clean shaven and had black and bleached-orange hair sticking out from underneath a black and white flat-brimmed ball cap. He was wearing a black hoodie with a black shirt underneath, black and white runners, black pants, and was carrying a computer bag.

Photos of the offender are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information on the identity of the man is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers through the following methods:
