Saskatoon Police Service investigators are requesting public assistance in identifying a suspect in a recent sexual assault.
On June 22, 2010 between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. a 25 year old woman was walking on 19th Street West, near Avenue J, when she was approached by a male in a black truck. The male first requested directions, then showed the woman a handgun and forced her into his truck. He drove the woman to a location approximately 2 kms west of Saskatoon on the 33rd Street extension, where he sexually assaulted her.
The male is described as a Caucasian male in his 40's, between 5'10" and 5'11" in height, with a heavy muscular build. He has short dark hair, possibly in a brush cut and a dark moustache. He was wearing a white tank top or muscle shirt, faded jeans and work boots. The jeans and work boots were covered in dried paint or drywall mud.
The black truck is described as a late model, containing a silver metal tool box, and a cover for the truck box. The vehicle has an out of province license plate. The interior of the truck is grey, and very clean with air fresheners hanging from the rear view mirror. There was a single, driver side seat cover.
A composite drawing of the suspect is being released in hopes of identifying him.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300 or Saskatoon Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
