The Saskatoon Police Service is requesting public assistance in identifying a suspect in a sexual assault. The male, believed to be between 30 and 40 years of age is pictured in surveillance photos on a Saskatoon Transit bus.
On May 20, 2012, at approximately 9:00 p.m., a 22 year old female boarded a transit bus in the downtown area. She was approached by a male who engaged her in conversation and convinced her to depart from the bus with him in the area of 33rd Street and Idylwyld Drive. He was in possession of a mountain bike at the time. The suspect then took the victim, who has special needs, to a park somewhere nearby and sexually assaulted her. He then took her to a residence and sexually assaulted her several more times over the next 24 hours. She was eventually released.
The suspect is described as a male of aboriginal descent, between 30 and 40 years of age, with a medium build. He was clean-shaven at the time, with short dark brown or black hair. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a grey and white striped hoodie and a white and black ball cap with a logo on the front. He was in possession of a black mountain bike (possibly a Raleigh) with gold lettering on the frame. He may go by the name Willace or Wallace.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect or this incident is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
One surveillance photo is attached. Additional photos will be emailed to media and will be available at saskatoonpoliceservice.ca.
