A 41-year-old man has been charged in connection with a sexual assault more than two years ago.

Winnipeg police said today that the man, who is in custody, was charged with sexual assault on Wednesday.

Police said a 23-year-old woman was walking in the 300 block of Manitoba Avenue on Sept. 19, 2011, at about 1:50 p.m., when a man riding a bicycle began talking to her.

Police said the man suddenly grabbed the woman and forced her between two garages where she was sexually assaulted. The man then fled on the bicycle.

The department’s Sex Crime Unit continued to investigate resulting in a suspect being identified.
