WARNING: This article contains details of an attempted sexual assault.

Police are looking for a man after a sexual assault in a bus shelter on the Southwest Transitway early Saturday.

Around midnight, police responded to a report of a person who had been sexually assaulted at the shelter near Chancellor Drive and Pembina Highway, police said in a news release.

Officers met the victim at Victoria General Hospital. She had suffered multiple lacerations and upper body injuries in the assault, police said.

Police learned she was sitting inside the bus shelter when a man approached her with a knife. He told her to get naked, threatening to hurt her if she didn’t, according to the statement.

The victim was physically and sexually assaulted, before a transit bus arrived and broke up the assault. The assailant fled with some of his possessions, according to the police.

The suspect is described as around 30 years old and between five foot six and five foot eight. He has a slim build with short black hair and was wearing a short-sleeved white T-shirt with dark-colored joggers at the time of the attack.

The knife the suspect used was described as a larger kitchen knife with a gray or black handle.

Police are asking anyone who may have been in the area or observed someone matching the suspect’s description to contact the Sex Crimes Unit at 204-986-6245 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786- 8477 (TIPS).


Support is available for anyone who has experienced sexual assault.

You can access crisis lines and local support services through this Government of Canada website or the Canadian Association for the Elimination of Violence Database. If you are in immediate danger or fear for your safety or the safety of those around you, please call 911.
