Seeking Public Assistance - Sexual Assault

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify a man believed to be connected to a sexual assault.

At approximately 5 p.m., on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, an 18-year-old woman was on the Kerby Station CTrain platform when she was approached by a man she didn’t recognize. The man began talking to her, then followed her on to the same train. While on the train he began touching the woman, holding the back of her neck, putting his arm around her and attempting to grab her bag.

At the next stop, the man pulled the woman off the train, despite her best efforts to refuse. Once on the platform the man began to kiss her and tried to prevent her from getting away. The woman called a family member who in turn phoned police. Once the man heard police were on their way, he left the area.

The man is described as black, between 25 and 30 years old, approximately 6’ tall, with a slim build and short curly black hair. He was wearing black pants, a black shirt, unique black and white striped shoes and was carrying a charcoal grey backpack.

Photos of a man who may be connected to this incident have been supplied by Calgary Transit and can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about the identity of the man is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
