Sexual assault on CTrain prompts investigation by Calgary police

Calgary police are looking to the public for help locating a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a teenage girl while aboard a CTrain.

Police said the assault happened on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018 on a northbound train that had just departed from the Heritage LRT Station.

The suspect sat next to a teenage girl and began speaking with her before he “touched her inappropriately,” the Calgary Police Service (CPS) said in a Friday news release.

The victim told the suspect to leave, and he exited the train at the Victoria Park LRT Station at about 2:45 p.m. He then boarded another northbound train at the 4 Street LRT Station.

Police describe the suspect as being approximately 40 years old with dark brown hair and a heavy build. He was clean-shaven and last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black winter jacket, dark pants and a black Adidas backpack.

Police said the suspect’s CTrain journey began at the Somerset–Bridlewood LRT station at around 2:20 p.m., but he changed cars when the train stopped at both the Fish Creek Station and Heritage Station.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact police by calling the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or contacting Crime Stoppers.
