Police Investigating Pair of Sexual Assaults

Winnipeg Police CrestWinnipeg police are investigating two sexual assaults in the past week.

The first occurred on August 30 when a woman was waiting for a bus in the 100 block of Pembina Highway.

A man approached the victim at around 8:40 a.m. and asked her if she wanted to go for a ride. When she declined, she was inappropriately grabbed before the man returned to his vehicle. The victim wasn’t injured.

The suspect is described as caucasian, approximately 6’1″-6’3″ tall, 180-200 pounds, with light brown hair and a beard, with a dark tattoo on his upper right arm.

In the second assault, a woman was inappropriately touched on September 2 when she entered an apartment.

The victim was followed by a man on small, black framed mountain bike while walking northbound on Furby Street at around 11:30 p.m. The man attempted to strike up a conversation with the woman before following her to an apartment building. He fled once the woman banged on the door of a nearby suite.

The suspect is described as black, in his early 20’s, approximately 5’5″ in height, medium build with short dark hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at (204) 986-6222 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
