Seeking public assistance to identify sexual assault suspect

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify a man who is believed to have touched a youth inappropriately.

On Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, between 6:03 p.m. and 6:48 p.m., the victim was watching a hockey game at Cardel Rec South located at the 300 block of Shawville Blvd. S.E. During this time, the victim was approached by the suspect who engaged the youth in conversation.

The suspect asked the victim if he would like to go sit down. Once they were seated, the suspect allegedly inappropriately touched the victim.

A witness observed the verbal interaction between the suspect and the victim and approached them out of concern. At this time, the suspect claimed he had to text someone and left the area.

The suspect was wearing a grey or light-brown hoodie, black pants, black shoes and carrying a black jacket at the time of the alleged offence.
