Man who sexually assaulted woman near southeast Edmonton park sought by police

Police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a woman in broad daylight in southeast Edmonton.

The victim told investigators on Sunday, May 8, she was beckoned by a man who was standing in the tree line north of Crawford Plains School park. When she approached him, he attacked her.

Police say she was able to escape and fled to the playground where she was helped by others.

On Wednesday, police released a description of the man:

  • approximately 55 years old;
  • South Asian;
  • spoken fluent Punjabi;
  • between 168 and 173 centimetres (5’6″ and 5’8″) tall;
  • about 68 kilograms (150 pounds) heavy; and
  • was wearing a white Molson Canadian beer shirt, dark pants and a dark baseball cap.

As well, police said, the man has “a defined jaw, large nose, small eyes, thick eyebrows, gray stubble, a deep, raspy voice, and is missing multiple front upper and lower teeth.”

Crawford Plains residents are asked to review their security and dashcam footage from that day and time for any people matching the description, and anyone with information is asked to contact police.

The principal of Crawford Plains School on Monday notified families Edmonton police were investigating an incident that had happened at its playground over the weekend.

“Child in our community may have seen police activity in our area and may ask you questions about it. As your principal, I value open and honest communication with our school community, so I wanted to let you know what was going on. We are cooperating with police as they continue to investigate,” wrote Lisa Nachtigal.

She confirmed no students were involved in the incident.
