Groping Incidents – Update: R18-30777 & C18-103583
As previously released on Saturday, May 20, 2018, the Winnipeg Police Service has recently received the report of two groping incidents in the Downtown area.
On May 18, 2018, at approximately 7:50 a.m., a female in her 30's was walking in the skywalk near the Bell MTS Place and Cityplace Shopping Centre connection when she was approached by a male and grabbed.
The male was described as being black in appearance, 20 years old, approximately 5' tall with a small build and was wearing t-shirt and cargo pants (no colours are available).
On May 19, 2018, at approximately 9:15 a.m., a female in her late teens was walking in a public walkway between the YCMA and Portage Place Shopping Centre when she was approached by a male and grabbed.
The male was described as being black in appearance, 20 years old, approximately 5'8", 150 lbs with short black hair and a slight accent. He was wearing a white t-shirt with a logo on front, blue jeans, black runners with white soles and had a black backpack with white stitching on the pockets.
Investigators have since learned of a third incident where a male had been acting suspiciously around a female in her late teens on May 19, 2018, at approximately 6:45 a.m. in the Portage Place Shopping Centre.
Surveillance images from the third incident are being provided and it is believed the three events may be related. Investigators are asking the public for their assistance with identifying the male.
