A 19-year-old woman working in a department store in Polo Park Shopping Centre was sexually assaulted Saturday evening.
Winnipeg police say staff at the store witnessed a suspicious man earlier in the day who appeared to take pictures and video of shoppers.
The woman was approached by the man for assistance, when police say the suspect made inappropriate contact with her and fled the store just before 7 p.m.
He is described as Caucasian, 5’9″ tall, slim build, late 20s/early 30s, clean shaven with very short dirty blonde hair.
Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
