Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect in a reported sexual assault.
On Apr. 10, 2017, police responded to a report of an alleged sexual assault that took place in the area of 72 Street and 81 Avenue in late March. A female in her late 50s reported that she was sexually assaulted by a male at a residence in the area between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Mar. 31, 2017. The male, who was known to the woman as an acquaintance, reportedly contacted her after a number of years and allegedly sexually assaulted her during their brief visit. He then left the area immediately after.
After exhausting all other investigative avenues, police are seeking assistance from the public in identifying the male.
The suspect is described as a 45-50-year-old male, approximately 5’9” tall with a medium build. He was wearing dark coloured pants, a white shirt and a black jacket. Of note is the suspect’s hair, which was shaved on the sides, long on top and tied back in a ponytail.
