Montreal police are setting up two mobile command posts on Mont-Royal on Thursday, hoping to catch a suspect in a sexual assault attack that took place in September.
According to the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), a man, presumed to be between the ages of 25 and 30, grabbed a woman in in the Mont-Royal Cemetery on September 28 at around 8:30 pm.
The suspect attempted to lure the woman into a wooded area of the cemetery before the victim protected herself and fled the scene. She was unable to identify the man but helped describe the man, resulting in a composite sketch.
