Sketch of Burns Lake sexual assault suspect released

Burns Lake RCMP have released a sketch of a suspect wanted in connection with a sexual assault in that community in August.

On Thursday August 15, a 15-year-old girl was sitting on a bench in Radley Beach, when an unknown man sat down beside her. The suspect put his hand on her back and when she got up to leave, the man tried to stop her from leaving. She was able to run from the area and immediately called the police.

As a result of the investigation, police are now able to release a composite sketch of the person they believe may be responsible.

The man has been described as heavy set, 5’5″ to 5’10″ tall, brown eyes, short dark hair on the sides with longer shaggier dark hair on the top of his head. It is believed he may be Indigenous.
