UPDATE-Stranger Sexual Assault in Oshawa

In Police Blotter

Investigators are releasing a composite sketch of the suspect wanted for a stranger sexual assault incident earlier this month.

 

The sketch of the suspect and his forearm tattoo is attached or can be viewed at www.drps.ca under Newsroom.

 

On Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at approximately 11:45 a.m., an unknown male knocked on the victim’s door at her residence in the Ritson Road South/Olive Avenue area of Oshawa. The male began asking questions about the house for sale nearby when he entered the house and then suddenly pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.  The victim fought off the attacker and he fled on foot, running westbound.

 

The suspect is described as a male, white, in his 30s, possibly with blue eyes, a shaved head (with some hair stubble) crooked and yellow teeth, baggy blue shirt, sweatpants and running shoes.

 

He had a tattoo of a pirate ship on right inside forearm, writing on his outside right forearm and his fingers were stained yellow from cigarettes. His cheeks were drawn in and he smelled of cigarettes. The suspect kept using the phrase “right on.”

 

Thank you to the OPP for providing this sketch.

 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact D/Cst. Rabishaw  of the Central East Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520, ext. 5327.
