Oct 8 2020, 1:34 pm

Tuesday was a bad day for Calgary.

The Calgary Police Service has announced that they are investigating three different instances of sexual assault on Tuesday, October 6, noting that while it is unknown if the assaults are related, there were some similarities.

The first sexual assault allegedly occurred in the early morning when a woman was jogging southbound near Coach Hill Road SW towards the intersection at Bow Trail SW.

It is believed that a man yelled at, charged at, and sexually touched the woman before fleeing southbound towards Bow Trail SW.

Police describe the suspect as “white, approximately 5’5”, 20 to 30 years old with a medium build and day’s growth beard. He was wearing a dark-coloured toque, a dark T-shirt with a red and black plaid shirt tied around his waist and baggy blue jeans.”

At 3 pm that same day, CPS notes that a woman who had been walking in the 900 block of Northmount Drive NW was allegedly touched sexually from behind by a man.

That suspect then fled in what the release describes as a newer model white sport utility vehicle, which may have been a Honda CRV.

The suspect in the 3 pm incident is described as Caucasian, around 40, 5’5″ tall, and with a medium build. He had been wearing black shorts.

Later that afternoon, a woman who had been walking in the 5000 block of 14th Avenue SW was allegedly grabbed from behind in a sexual manner by an unknown man, the release states.

This third incident took place at 5:50 pm, and though the woman attempted to chase the man, he managed to flee on foot. He is described in the release as wearing a black hoodie, black pants, and a black backpack.

Anyone with information on any of these incidents is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service’s non-emergency number at 403-266-1234.
