The survivors’ names were not released by the police to protect their identities, though police did state that both were known to Gillespie.
The release urged anyone with information on a sexual assault, or who had been sexually assaulted, to report it by calling the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or by visiting a district office.
Anyone in immediate danger should call 9-1-1 as soon as they are able.
