  • Print

Police are looking for a teen boy who sexually assaulted a 48-year-old woman this week.

Around 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday, the woman was walking near Netley Street and North Drive. She saw a teen boy, who appeared to be between 16-18-years-old, biking towards her. He initially biked past her, but continued looking in her direction.

About two minutes later, he's alleged to have biked up behind the woman again and to have groped her in the lower body. The woman screamed and the teen fled the scene.

The suspect is described as caucasian, medium build, with short reddish/brown hair. He was wearing a red t-shirt and shorts, riding a mountain bike and had a cell phone.

Anyone with more information regarding the incident is asked to contact members of the West District Crime Unit at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
