EDMONTON — Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a 33-year-old man believed to be involved in a sexual assault and robbery in Edmonton.
Police say a 37-year-old woman was assaulted on Saturday, April 11 while jogging in the area of 116 Avenue and 102 Street. It happened around 6:30 p.m.
Ashton Dennis Natomagan is wanted on the following charges:
- assault with a weapon
- choking with the intent to overcome resistance
- unlawful confinement
- sexual assault with threats to cause bodily harm
- possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public
- uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm
The 33-year-old was released from the Grande Cache Institution in early March, after serving just over five years for sexual assault causing bodily harm. Two days later, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to return to his halfway house, which was a violation of his parole.
Natomagan is described as an Aboriginal male, 5’11” and 170 pounds. He has a bald head or very short hair.
