Sexual Assault Arrest – C15-146973
On July 14, 2015, shortly after 1:30 a.m. members of the Winnipeg Police Service were on patrol in the area of Allan Blye Drive and Leila Avenue when they were flagged down by a female who advised that she had just been sexually assaulted.

The 20-year-old victim related that she and a friend had met up with a male known only to her friend, along with one of his friends.  The group was walking in the area when the victim and her friend became separated.  Shortly thereafter, three males not known to the victim joined their group.  A short time later these five males committed a serious sexual assault upon her. The victim was eventually able to flee and came across the patrolling Winnipeg Police members soon after.

On July 27th investigators located and arrested the suspect without incident in the Maples area.

A 17-year-old male of Winnipeg has been charged with Sexual Assault for his alleged involvement.

He remains in custody.

The investigation is continuing by members of the Sex Crimes Unit and further arrests are expected. Anyone with information regarding this matter or the identity of the outstanding suspects is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-6245 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
