The RCMP are hoping that by releasing a composite sketch of a suspect, someone will provide them with a tip in a Lloydminster sexual assault investigation.

Officers hope information from the public could lead to an arrest.

Police are investigating after a woman was sexually assaulted somewhere north of Highway 16 on 75 Avenue in the Alberta/Saskatchewan border city on Saturday. It happened sometime between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. and the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Earlier this week, police said they were looking for “a vehicle of interest” in connection with the case: a white, older model car with Manitoba licence plates. The front driver-side tire is a small spare tire and there was dirt on the vehicle.
