Police thanked people at Massage Heights for their co-operation and encouraged anyone who is a sexual assault victim to contact officers — “no matter when the incident occurred” — at 403-266-1234 or 911.

“There is no statute of limitations on criminal sexual offences in Canada, and we encourage anyone who has been a victim of a serious crime to report it, even if many years have passed since the incident,” police said.
