Police are looking for a suspect in a sexual assault case.
A 16-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in a northeast Calgary Dairy Queen while she was cleaning the women’s washroom, according to a release from the Calgary Police Service.
The girl had been cleaning the men’s washroom when a man approached her to indicate that he needed to use the room. She left to go clean the women’s room instead, but the man followed her, began speaking to her, and allegedly touched her inappropriately and covered the girl’s mouth with his hand.
She was able to call for help, and when a coworker rushed in the man fled the restaurant.
The incident took place around 5:15 pm on Monday, January 8, and police are looking for the alleged offender.
Photos of the man have been captured on the restaurant’s security cameras, and police describe him as “an Indigenous man in his late 20s, 6’3” tall, with a slim build. He was clean shaven and had black and bleached-orange hair sticking out from underneath a black and white flat-brimmed ball cap. He was wearing a black hoodie with a black shirt underneath, black and white runners, black pants, and was carrying a computer bag.”
Anyone with information on who this man is or his whereabouts is urged to contact the Calgary Police Service by calling 403-266-1234, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, or online through their website.
