The Regina Police Service is investigating a report of a sexual assault believed to have taken place on the weekend in the area of Central Park, which is located on the 2200 block between Scarth and Hamilton Streets. At this early stage in this investigation, there is not enough information to indicate an increased risk to residents in the area, but the Regina Police Service feels it prudent to caution people to be more watchful and practice good personal safety strategies, especially when walking alone at night.
Police began this investigation after being called to the hospital on August 17, 2013, for a report of a 27 year-old female who indicated she’d been sexually assaulted by an unknown male. The victim indicated that sometime after 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 16, 2013, she had been at a party and was walking west in the 1800 block of 14th Avenue when a male, who was walking in the same direction, grabbed her and pulled her into a bunch of trees in Central Park. The victim was assaulted and sexually assaulted and, at some point lost consciousness. When she came to, she managed to get help from two males she saw on the sidewalk. The males helped her walk to the hospital, but she continued to walk to a house nearby on 14th Avenue and did not go to hospital until the afternoon of August 17th, at which time police were called. This incident is still under investigation. The male suspect was described as black, 6’ 4” tall, heavy set, bald, wearing glasses and a light blue golf shirt, blue track pants with white stripes and brown leather sandals. This incident is under investigation.
