The Halton Regional Police is investigating a sexual assault that occurred on a walking path in a wooded area south of Sheridan College in the Town of Oakville.

The incident took place on Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at approximately 6:00pm. A person of interest was taken into custody as a result of the initial police investigation.

Investigators with the Child Abuse and Sexual Assault unit conducted a thorough investigation and deemed the person of interest not responsible for the sexual assault that occurred. This male has been released without charges.

The four male witnesses that chased the suspect have been identified and are cooperating with the police.

Investigators believe this offender may also be responsible for the assaults that occurred in August and October of 2013 at the same location.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect given the following description:


  • Between 5’4” and 5’6”
  • Slim or medium build
  • Wearing a dark coloured jacket with a hood.
  • The rim of the hood is believed to be lined with a light coloured material.
  • It is also believed that the suspect was wearing a dark coloured ski mask or other material which covered his face.

During the assault, the victim bit the suspect and there is a strong possibility the suspect will have suffered an injury consistent with a bite mark to one of his hands.

Police would like to remind the public to make your personal safety your number one priority.

Try and walk in large groups, particularly at night and use the buddy system as there is strength in numbers.
If you can, choose a well-lit route to your destination.
Always trust your own instincts and make feeling safe your priority.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
