The incidents, which occurred Friday, Sept. 1 and Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023, between 10:30 p.m. and midnight, involved an adult male approaching lone females walking in the area between 80 Avenue and 84 Avenue, and 112 Street to 107 Street. The male suspect then reportedly committed sexual assaults through unsolicited sexual touching on three different females.

“Our investigative team now believes there is enough evidence to suggest that one suspect may be responsible for these three incidents,” says Staff Sgt. Harry Grewal, of the EPS Sexual Assault Section. “Suspect descriptions and actions are similar in all three incidents.”

The suspect is described as a white male, between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, 5’9”-6’0” tall, with a thin to medium build.

EPS Sexual Assault Section continues to investigate these offences and is asking anyone who may have also been victimized or has information regarding the suspect responsible for these sexual assaults to contact the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
