A 29-year-old woman trying to give money to a man who asked her for spare change on Monday afternoon in the North Point Douglas area was sexually assaulted by the man.
The woman saw an unknown male following her in the area of Main Street and Sutherland Avenue. He then approached her and asked for change.
Police said the suspect was armed with an undisclosed weapon and grabbed her as she was getting money out of her purse. He forced her toward a nearby building in the 100 block of Sutherland Avenue where a sexual assault occurred.
The suspect is described as a caucasian male, about 40-years-old with a heavy build, 5-foot-9 inches tall and about 200 pounds with a shaved, bald head, a pointy nose and what appears to be a burn mark or a circular scar on the right area of his chest. He was wearing prescription sunglasses.
Anyone with information regarding this incident or the suspect is asked to contact police at 204-986-6245 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
