Police investigate three separate sexual assaults
We are seeking public assistance in relation to three separate sexual assaults that occurred yesterday in the southwest and northwest areas of the city.
It is unclear at this time if any of these incidents are related to the same offender, however, there are similarities.
Earlier today, we released a composite sketch of an unknown man believed to be responsible for a sexual assault that occurred last month. This incident is not believed to be connected to any of these three events.
In the more recent incidents, yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020, we shared that a woman was jogging southbound near Coach Hill Road S.W. approaching Bow Trail S.W. The woman jogged past an unknown man who was walking northbound.
The man yelled at the woman, and allegedly charged at her and sexually touched her. The woman screamed and was able to run away and call police.
The man fled prior to police arrival and was last seen running southbound towards Bow Trail S.W.
The man is described as White, approximately 5’5’’, 20 to 30 years old with a medium build and day’s growth beard. He was wearing a dark-coloured toque, a dark t-shirt with a red and black plaid shirt tied around his waist and baggy blue jeans.
Later that same day, at approximately 3 p.m., a woman was walking in the 900 block of Northmount Drive N.W., when an unknown man allegedly approached her from behind and sexually touched her. The man fled the area in a newer-model white Sport Utility Vehicle, possibly a Honda CRV.
The man is described as White, approximately 40 years old, approximately 5’5’’ tall, with a medium build. He was wearing black shorts at the time the incident occurred.
A few hours later, at approximately 5:50 p.m., a woman was walking in the 5000 block of 14 Avenue S.W., when an unknown man allegedly grabbed the woman from behind and touched her in a sexual manner. The woman attempted to chase after the suspect, but he fled on foot.
The man is described as wearing a black hoodie, black pants and carrying a black backpack.
