Edmonton police have released a ‘composite sketch’ and ‘video still’ of a man they’re trying to identify after a woman was brutally attacked.
She was walking on a path along Saskatchewan Drive near 116th Street, just before midnight on Friday, Aug. 5th, when she was grabbed, choked to unconsciousness and dragged into some nearby bushes.
But police say some nearby witnesses came to her aid, and her attacker fled.
The suspect is described as a dark-skinned, younger man, standing around 5’7” to 5’11”, with short black hair and a thin black beard.
He was wearing dark pants, a white or grey tank top with blue trim and a design on the front, a red zip-up hooded sweatshirt with white piping, black footwear, and a red and black Chicago Bulls baseball hat like the one seen below.
The woman he’s accused of attacking was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but has since been released.
