Sexual Assault Investigation C15-162352 On August 4, 2015 at approximately 12:45 p.m., a 5 year-old female was playing on an indoor play structure while attending a fitness centre with her father in the area of Fermor Avenue and St. Mary's Road.
It's been reported that the child was followed onto the structure by an unknown male youth. While concealed by the play structure tubes, the victim was touched inappropriately.
The victim shared the incident with her father after which time the suspect had already left the area.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 17-years-old, 5'10" tall, average build, short sandy-blonde hair, possible face stubble, wearing black shorts, black t-shirt with red colouring/letters.
The investigation is continuing by members of the Child Abuse Unit. Anyone with information regarding the incident or suspect is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-3296 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
Fatal MVC Update C15-159097 As previously released, on Thursday, July 30 2015 approximately 6:25 p.m. the Winnipeg Police Service responded to the intersection of William Avenue and Arlington Street for a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian.
The investigation determined that an adult female was walking eastbound at the intersection of Arlington Street at William Avenue when she was struck by a vehicle. The victim was transported to hospital in critical condition, but was pronounced deceased later yesterday evening.
The investigation has revealed that two vehicles were in the intersection at the time of the collision: the first was a 2010-2012 Maroon coloured Ford Fusion making a north bound turn onto Arlington Street from east bound William Avenue; the other was a white coloured GMC extended cab. It is likely that the occupants of these vehicles witnessed the incident.
