Man enters Winnipeg home through unlocked door, commits indecent act; “tried to force himself onto the victim”

Winnipeg, Manitoba – On July 31, 2022, at approximately 2:30 a.m., members of the Winnipeg Police Service responded to a residence in the Wolseley neighbourhood for a report of a break-in where a male suspect had committed an indecent act.

It is believed that the male had entered the house through an unlocked door when he was confronted inside by two adult female residents. He entered a room where she was attempting to hide, pushed the door open and committed an indecent act. He then tried to force himself onto the victim; however, the resident was able to fend him off. The male fled prior to police arrival. Several police units subsequently searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
