The Calgary Police Service is releasing a composite sketch of a suspect in a sexual assault that took place in WeaselHead Flats park located in southwest Calgary.

At approximately 5:45 p.m., on Friday, May 18, 2018, a woman was walking along the Jack Rabbit trail when she noticed a man on a mountain bike pass by her. Fifteen minutes later the man returned and placed his bike on the ground and then walked towards the woman. The man asked the woman for information about the nearby trails.

The woman was then allegedly hugged from behind by the suspect and was dragged towards the nearby bushes. The man undid his pants down to his knees and started sexually touching the woman.
