Calgary police are asking for the public’s help in their investigation of a sexual assault that happened in Coach Hill on Tuesday morning.

At roughly 5 a.m. on Oct. 6, a woman jogging southbound on Coach Hill Road S.W. approaching Bow Trail S.W. ran past an unknown man who was walking in the other direction.

The man allegedly yelled at the woman before charging at her and sexually touching her. The woman screamed and was able to run away and call police.

The man was last seen fleeing south on Bow Trail S.E.

He is described as a Caucasian in his 20s, approximately 5′ 5″ with medium build and a day’s growth of beard.

The suspect was wearing a dark toque, a dark t-shirt with a black plaid shirt tied around his waist, and baggy blue jeans.

Police would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the attack.

They also said while nobody deserves to be victimized, joggers can improve their safety by running in groups of two or more, staying in well-lit areas and not wearing earbuds in order to remain aware of surroundings.

Anyone with information can contact police at 403-2366-1234, or by leaving a tip with Crime Stoppers.
