Calgary Police seek assistance in sexual assault investigation

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify an alleged sexual assault suspect for an incident that occurred on a train last year.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, at approximately 2:20 p.m., a man boarded a northbound train at the Somerset and Bridlewood station. The investigation has revealed the man changed cars and boarded the front car of the train at the Fish Creek station, and then proceeded to change cars again at the Heritage station where he boarded the last car.

After boarding at the Heritage station, the man sat down beside a teen girl. The man allegedly engaged in conversation and touched her inappropriately.

The victim told the suspect to leave, and the suspect exited the train at the Victoria Park station at approximately 2:45 p.m. The man proceeded to board another northbound train at the 4 Street location.

The male suspect is described as having a medium complexion, approximately 40 years old, with dark brown hair, clean shaven and a heavy build. The man was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black winter jacket, dark pants and a black Adidas backpack.

CCTV images of the man are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers using any of the following methods:
