Update/Clarification on February 13 Sexual Assault

 

As a follow-up to yesterday afternoon’s media report, police are providing additional information on the sexual assault which occurred on February 13 on Agricola Street and clarifying the suspect description.
 
A 21-year-old woman was walking on Agricola Street between West and Cunard Streets between 1:50 and 2:05 a.m. when a man standing on the sidewalk called out to her that he would phone a taxi for her. She was lured into a laneway between Sarah and Woodill Streets where the man pushed her up against the wall of a building and forced her to have sexual intercourse. The woman was able to break free from the man and run away. She made her way home and then attended the QEII hospital where she was treated and released.

The suspect is described as 24-years-of age, 5’10” with a medium build, textured light brown hair that is about an inch in length, with scruff on his face and wearing jeans and a black jacket.
