London Police are appealing to the public as officers seek a suspect wanted in connection with a sexual assault investigation.
According to police, a woman was walking alone in the area of Adelaide Street North, between Huron Street and Kipps Lane, sometime between 12:30 and 1 a.m. on Monday when she was approached by a man walking a dog.
The man spoke with her briefly and then grabbed her and touched her inappropriately. She was able to break free and was not physically injured.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s with a slim build and short reddish-brown goatee. He was wearing a toque, dark hooded sweat shirt, and possibly track pants and he may speak with an accent.
The dog he was walking is described as a large, shaggy light or reddish-coloured dog, possibly named “Molly”. Police have released a composite sketch of the suspect (pictured above).
