Calgary, AB,

Composite sketch being shared of downtown sexual assault suspect

We are sharing a composite sketch in relation to a sexual assault investigation.

On Thursday, July 1, 2021, at approximately 3 p.m., a woman was sitting near the river on the north side of the Harvie Passage when she was approached by an unknown man.

It is believed the man had sunscreen with him and began to apply it on her arms and thighs, without her consent. The victim stood up and left the area.

The suspect is described as white, approximately 5’ 10”, with an average build. At the time of the incident he was wearing a tan-coloured baseball hat, black shorts and was not wearing a shirt or shoes. He also had a black mountain bike nearby.

The composite sketch can be found online at The City of Calgary Newsroom. A time delay in sharing this incident with the public came as a result of working closely with the victim to ensure as accurate a sketch as possible.

We want to remind Calgarians that sexual touching without consent is sexual assault. It has a lasting impact on the victim and can leave them feeling unsafe and vulnerable in public for many years after the incident.

Anyone who may know the identity of the suspect or was aware of similar activity on that day is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
