Sex Crimes investigators are seeking the public’s help to track down a suspect after a woman was sexually assaulted while cleaning a home for sale.
The assault occurred on May 22 around 2.30 p.m.
At a press conference at police headquarters on May 25, Detective Sergeant Joanne Rudnick said the suspect – who was allowed entry to view the home in the Greenland Road and Deepwood Crescent area after knocking on the door – attacked and sexually assaulted the victim.
Startled by the sound of a door closing, he fled the scene and the victim exited the house and called for assistance.
“Although we do not release particulars of the assault, I can tell you this case is alarming and we need the public’s help in order to solve it,” said Rudnick.
The victim received treatment at a hospital and was released.
The suspect is described as white, in his 20s, 5’8” with a thin build. He had red streaked hair that flared at his ears. He was wearing a faded orange shirt ripped at the neck, cut-off blue jean shorts below the knees and black shoes with white lettering.
Rudnick made a direct appeal to the suspect if he sees his composite in the news.
“If you are watching, get a lawyer and turn yourself in,” she said. “You know what you did.”
In addition to the public, Rudnick is asking real estate agents that may have been in the area at the time to call Sex Crimes at 416- 808-7474, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at 222tips.com, text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637), or Leave A Tip on Facebook.
