Police Investigate Sexual Assault

The Halifax Regional Police Integrated Sexual Assault Investigative Team are currently investigating an incident that occurred on April 21, 2018 shortly after 2 a.m. in the 1700 Block of Brunswick Street, Halifax.

Sexual assault investigations are very complex. As part of our victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to sexualized violence, we work closely with victims to ensure they’re willing to proceed with a police investigation, which includes giving a statement about the incident and providing a description of the suspect if possible.

Police must also ensure the victim’s privacy is upheld and well-being is fully considered; sexual assault investigators have been taking these measures since first speaking with the victim.

Investigators are asking anyone who has any information on this incident, to contact police by calling 902-490-5020. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip – Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
