Woman approached, groped near Uptown

Saanich Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman near Uptown late Saturday night.

Saanich Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman near Uptown late Saturday night.

Around 11:15 p.m. on March 5, a woman contacted police and reported being groped by an unknown man in the area of Carey Road and Ravine Way. She told police the male approached her from behind, grabbed her arm and breast, and then fled on food toward Cadillac Avenue.

While numerous officers responded to the area, they were unable to locate the man.

The suspect is described as a white male between 30 and 40, 5-foot-5, with a slim build and pale complexion. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a dark black or blue hat and a black jacket.

Acting Sgt. Jereme Leslie said this latest sexual assault does not appear to be linked to recent assaults in the district, such as the similar Jan. 26 attack near Mount Douglas secondary.

“Right now, our investigators do not believe that those incidents are related at all – there’s a completely different description (of the suspect),” said Leslie.

Anyone with information relating to the incident is asked to call Saanich Police at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
