Po­lice in­ves­ti­gate as­sault on sex trade worker, seek sus­pect

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hamil­ton po­lice are look­ing for a man in his 40s who they say sex­u­ally as­saulted a sex trade worker early Sun­day.

Po­lice say the sex trade worker, a woman, ap­proached a man on Bar­ton Street East near Mil­ton Av­enue be­tween 1:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., and the two walked to a nearby lo­ca­tion. That is where po­lice say the woman was phys­i­cally and sex­u­ally as­saulted. The woman man­aged to walk back to Bar­ton Street near Birch Av­enue and flag down two of­fi­cers pass­ing by, po­lice said in a press re­lease.

Po­lice de­scribe the sus­pect as a white man with short blond or brown hair who was wear­ing a grey but­ton-up shirt.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Det. Carolyne Rash­ford of the sex­ual as­sault unit at 905-540-5543 or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477.
