Edmonton police are seeking help from the public in tracking down a sexual assault perpetrator in southwest Edmonton. Trigger warning on the following description of the assault and the suspect.
Last week a man on a bicycle approached a 19-year-old woman at the south end of the pedestrian bridge over Whitemud Drive at 114 Street.
The man got off his bike and exposed himself to the woman, who walked away from the suspect, said police.
However the man followed her onto the bridge groping her in a sexual manner, police said.
The suspect is described as Asian, in his mid 20s, 5’6” with an average build, with short black hair and possibly thin metal-frame glasses.
The man was reported to be wearing a black jacket with a zipper, long black basketball-style shorts, and riding a white retro-style bike with straight handlebars.
Police said the incident may be related to others this summer and the summer of 2010, when a man exposed himself to random people.
All of the incidents occurred in the southwest area of the city, roughly from 34th Avenue to 51st Avenue in the area of 111th Street.
