Man charged in relation to CTrain sex assault

The Calgary Police Service has charged a man in relation to a sex assault that occurred on the CTrain earlier this month.

On Saturday, July 7, 2018, at approximately 3:40 p.m., a woman aboard a northwest-bound CTrain was approached by a man who sat near her and engaged her in conversation. Following a brief conversation, during which the man is believed to have touched the victim’s arms, the man grabbed the woman inappropriately. The woman moved to the other end of the CTrain car and it is believed that the male exited the train at the Dalhousie station.

CCTV footage and still images were released, which led to tips from the public.

Surjit Singh BAJWA, 81, has been charged with one count of sexual assault.

Investigators would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance.
