MAIDSTONE, Sask. – Police in Saskatchewan are looking for a male suspect after a reported sexual assault on a girl at a hockey rink.
Maidstone RCMP responded Sunday to the Sportsplex in nearby Lashburn.
The investigation determined a man sexually assaulted a female child under the age of 10 in a dressing room at the rink.
The girl reported the alleged assault to her parents, who called police.
The man was not found and police say a significant investigation is active and ongoing.
Police are hoping the public can help find the suspect, who is described as being in his 40s, dark haired, clean-shaven and wearing a black jacket.
“We want to assure the public that we are dedicating all possible resources to this investigation. Members of the public can help progress this investigation by reporting all information about this incident,” said RCMP spokeswoman Sgt. Jolyne Harrison.
“We want parents and guardians to be aware of this incident and the suspect’s description, so they can take safety precautions and have conversations with children about it, as they deem appropriate.”
