Calgary, AB,

Police investigating after two females assaulted

At approximately 9 p.m., on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015, a woman was walking home from work near the intersection of 7 Avenue and 12 Street N.W., when a man approached her from behind and sexually touched her. The man then fled west on 7 Avenue and south on 14 Street N.W.

The following day, at approximately 7:30 p.m., a different woman was jogging near the intersection of 21A Street and 14 Avenue N.W. She was approached from behind by a man who put his arm around her and tried to block her from running away. The victim did run away and called police.

The man in the second incident is described as Caucasian, 40 to 60 years old, approximately 5’9” in height with a medium build. He was wearing blue jeans and a beige sweater.

Police believe these two incidents may be connected.

Police are reminding Calgarians to be aware of their surroundings when outside at night. As much as possible, citizens should try to jog or walk in well-lit and busy areas and should avoid wearing headphones or anything else that makes it difficult to notice unusual activity nearby.
