The York Re­gional Po­lice Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit, Sex­ual As­sault Sec­tion is seek­ing a male sus­pect after an early morn­ing as­sault in Rich­mond Hill on Nov. 13.

At Yonge Street and Bernard Av­enue, a fe­male dis­em­barked from a tran­sit bus at 12:30 a.m. Later, in the vicin­ity of Yonge Street and Canyon Hill Av­enue, the vic­tim was ap­proached by a male sus­pect, who then de­manded her money be­fore sex­u­ally as­sault­ing her.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the sus­pect may have re­ceived an in­jury to his right hand. A de­tailed de­scrip­tion of the sus­pect is posted on the York Re­gional Po­lice’s web­site.

York Re­gional Po­lice re­quest the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing the sus­pect and ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­lated to this crime to con­tact them. The po­lice en­cour­age the pub­lic to stay aware of their sur­round­ings if con­fronted by sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour.
