Police want to talk to the man depicted in a sketch released today about the sexual assault that happened in the Mission Creek Park June 3.
The 22-year-old victim was walking alone through the park before she was dragged into the bushes and sexually assaulted. When police arrived she was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
A man was seen walking from the area of the park entrance on Hall Road just before dark either on or close to the night of the sexual assault. He is described as Caucasian, in his early 30's, about 5'8" with a thin build. He appeared unkempt and was seen wearing baggy, tapered pants, a grey hoodie with a circular design and light coloured running shoes.
"This man is simply a person with whom the police would like to speak," RCMP Const. Kris Clark stated in a press release.
