CALGARY – Police are investigating a sexual assault in the community of Canyon Meadows.

A woman in her 20s got off of a CTrain at Heritage Station, then got on a transit bus shortly before 11 p.m. A man also boarded, and it’s believed they were the only two passengers on the bus.

Both of them got off at Elbow Drive and Canata Place S.W., near St. Catherine School, and the man followed the woman as she walked west.

As she travelled along the pathway between Canata Close and Canterbury Drive, the man ran at her, threatened her with a weapon, and repeatedly sexually assaulted her.

The victim eventually made it to safety, and called police. She was then taken to hospital to be treated for injuries.

The suspect is believed to be in his 20s, about 6′ tall with a slim build. He was wearing a grey jacket, green t-shirt, jeans, black running shoes and a dark-brimmed hat. He may have a French accent. CCTV photos of a man who may have information about the incident have since been released by police.

Anyone with information is asked to call police. Officers are also looking to speak with a man who was sitting on the stairs in the Heritage train station, who spoke with a man matching the suspect’s description.
