 Original release:

We are asking for help to identify an unknown man believed to have sexually assaulted a woman in the southwest community of Alpine Park.

On Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023, at approximately 7 p.m., a man entered a show home located in the 200 block of Alpine Avenue S.W. and presented himself as a potential home buyer.

As a female employee toured the man around the home, he confined her to a room and proceeded to touch her in a sexual manner without consent. When the woman threatened to call police, the man fled the show home and drove away in a vehicle described as a dark-coloured SUV, similar in style to an older model Toyota RAV4.

After collecting CCTV footage and speaking with the victim, our investigators were able to confirm the involvement of an unknown man. After unsuccessful attempts to identify the man, police are now turning to the public for their help in hopes of advancing this investigation. 

The suspect is described as a middle-aged man, approximately 6’ to 6’2” tall, with a heavy build, medium complexion, and a thick brown and grey beard. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey jacket or hoodie, blue pants and a black toque.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect or this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
