RCMP release sketch of suspect

RCMP look to further an ongoing police investigation into an alleged assault committed in early May. Investigators would like to urge a potential eyewitness to come forward, as they turn to the general public in an effort to identify a possible suspect depicted in a composite drawing.

On May 5, Kelowna RCMP received a report of an assault, that had reportedly taken place just before 2 p.m on Thursday May 2, in the Mission Creek Regional Park area located in the 2300-block of Springfield Road. Police have been told that the victim was on foot in the area, when she was assaulted by an unidentified male suspect. Police have also been told that the victim was unsuccessful when she attempted to wave down an unknown potential female witness, following the encounter.

“Since the incident, a specially trained forensic artist met with the victim in order to create a composite sketch of the assault suspect,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP.

The victim, a Kelowna woman in her 30’s, was reportedly uninjured during the alleged assault.

The suspect has been described to police as a Caucasian male in his 40’s, approximately 6 feet tall, of average build and skinny, with a fair skin tone, medium brown hair, and a moustache. He was reportedly wearing a white t-shirt and red shorts at the time.

The unknown witness has been described to police as walking a small black dog.

If you can identify the adult male depicted in the forensic sketch, or you have any additional information that may be of assistance to investigators, you are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP non-emergency line at 250-762-3300. Or remain completely anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
