Police are still searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman on a trail near the Riverdale subdivision.
“The victim was pretty traumatized so it was hard to get a detailed description,” said Sgt. Frank Campbell of the Whitehorse RCMP.
The 37-year-old woman was taking a shortcut between Lewes Boulevard and Tatchun Street when she was approached by a Caucasian male in his early 20s.
The blond man was dressed completely in black, wore a black baseball cap and carried some crack cocaine.
After the two spoke briefly, the man suddenly struck the woman and forced her to the ground where he sexually assaulted her.
The man fled the scene and the victim went to a nearby home to contact the police.
She was then taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
RCMP are continuing to investigate the case, but don’t have any major leads.
A police composite drawing of the suspect was released Thursday.
“The good news is there hasn’t been a repeated performance,” said Campbell.
“So it looks like this was a random act.”
