We are asking the public for their help in locating an unknown man who is believed to be responsible for an unprovoked attack on a woman in the northwest last night.

At approximately 10:40 p.m., yesterday, Wednesday, May 4, 2022, a woman was walking in Nose Hill Park near a parking lot located at 14 Street and 64 Avenue N.W. when she was attacked from behind by an unknown man.
