Sketch released to help identify suspect in random sexual assault
The Edmonton Police Service is releasing a composite sketch to the public to help identify a suspect in an alleged sexual assault that occurred in downtown Edmonton over the weekend.
On Saturday, June 27, 2015, police responded to a reported sexual assault around noon in the area of 106A Avenue and 96 Street. It is reported that a 54-year-old female was allegedly confronted outside of her residence, forced back inside her residence and sexually assaulted. The male allegedly threatened the female and stole property from her. The suspect fled southwest on foot from the residence.
“This was a very brazen occurrence, as it happened in broad daylight,” said Detective Dave Pelech with the Sexual Assault Section. “We are looking to the public for assistance in identifying the suspect and we encourage anyone who has information to come forward.”
The suspect is described as a dark-complexioned male (possibly Aboriginal) approximately 29 years of age, with a gap between his upper teeth and a straight nose. He is described as 5’7″ tall with a thin build and has a beard and mustache.
The suspect was last seen wearing a white T-shirt with ¾ length green sleeves with jeans and a black, straight brimmed baseball cap. His shoes were described as black high-top runners with black laces.
