ON SUN­DAY morn­ing a 30-year-old Can­non­vale woman re­ported a rape on Ocean View Ave in Air­lie Beach. The woman told po­lice the of­fender came up be­hind her, cov­ered her mouth and sex­u­ally as­saulted her. Of­fi­cer in charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Brad Teys said the public had been as­sist­ing po­lice with the iden­tity of the pos­si­ble sus­pect who was not a lo­cal res­i­dent.
