Arrest made in 2012 sexual assault

  • Print

After a lengthy investigation, Winnipeg police have made an arrest in a 2012 sexual assault.

The case dates back to October 2012, when officers first responded to the area of the 600 block of Panet Road after a woman reported a sexual assault.

The woman, a 58-year-old, was at a house party when she went outside to have a cigarette. She told officers she was confronted by an unknown man, at which time the sexual assault took place.

The woman returned to the residence and police were notified. The male fled the scene.

Last Friday, at approximately 5:40 p.m., officers came into contact with a man in the area of McDermot Avenue and Gertie Street.

Due to the outstanding warrant in relation to the alleged sexual assault, Desmond Koroma, 32, was arrested and charged.

Koroma was remanded into custody.
