Following an alleged Sunday sexual assault in Kamloops Mounties are looking for more victims and witnesses.

A woman had been parked in her vehicle at Riverside Park when a stranger approached her and said he had been injured and needed a ride. The woman contacted RCMP in the early hours of Jan.10, and she was allegedly sexually assaulted during the drive.

Officers quickly attended the area the suspect had been dropped off at and arrested Cody Joseph, 24, of no fixed address. He faces one count of sexual assault and remains in custody. His next court appearance is Jan. 18.

“Although police cannot go into specifics at this time due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, it is believed there may be more victims and witnesses who have yet to come forward,” Kamloops RCMP spokesperson, Const. Crystal Evelyn said in a press release. “We urge any witnesses or victims to please contact Kamloops RCMP.”

Police are releasing Joseph’s photo with the hope that other victims and witnesses will come forward. Please call 250-828-3000 if you have any further information.
