Toronto police released images of a male suspect they believe is responsible for allegedly assaulting an officer during a demonstration over the weekend.

On Saturday, officers attended a demonstration in the Gerrard Street East and Parliament Street area just before 5:30 p.m.

Police said the suspect was in attendance at the demonstration and assaulted an officer before fleeing the area.

The man is described as being between 25-35 years old, clean-shaven and was seen wearing a grey t-shirt, blue button-up shirt, black zip-up sweater, black jacket, black pants and white Adidas shoes.

Toronto police released images of the man, hoping someone would recognize him.
