Peel Police are asking for the public’s assistance in the investigation of a sexual assault in Mississauga.
Police said a 47-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by an armed man early Thursday in the area of South Service Road and Crestview Avenue.
Investigators say the woman was approached from behind, grabbed and pulled to a darkened area.
The suspect is described as a male, white, approximately 5’10″ tall, medium build, physically fit with a deep voice and no accent. He was wearing a long-sleeved shirt, dark pants, beige shoes and flesh coloured nylon stockings over his head and face.
Police would also like to take this opportunity to remind members of the public to always be aware of their surroundings and to report any suspicious persons or activity. If possible, walk with a partner and avoid unpopulated areas. Ensure that others are aware of your route and expected time of arrival. Have a cell phone readily accessible in case of an emergency.
