Police asking for help in identifying South Asian suspect

The Edmonton Police Service is asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect in a composite sketch.

On Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 a 25-year-old female reported she was approached by a lone male at the Lakewood Transit Center at approximately 8:45 a.m. The male allegedly grabbed the female and demanded that she come with him. When the female began to scream for help, the male fled on foot.

“We’ve reached a point in the investigation where we are now asking public to identify the man in sketch,” says Staff Sgt. Marc Cochlin with Southeast Division. “Although this crime took place two months ago, someone may recognize the man in the composite sketch.”

The suspect is described as a South Asian or Middle Eastern male, 30 to 35 years of age, and is about 5’6” tall. He has a thin build, short black hair with some grey on the sides, brown eyes and was clean shaven. He was seen wearing a waist length grey jacket, dark blue pants, and black shoes.

Anyone with information that could help police is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
