Police looking to identify suspect in sexual assault

Police are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man in relation to a sexual assault that occurred in Halifax.

On June 18 police received a report of a sexual assault that had occurred in the area of a bus shelter on Titus Street between Evans Avenue and Main Avenue between 9:30 and 11:30 p.m. A man sexually assaulted a woman not believed to be known to him. The investigation is ongoing, and we are unable to provide further details at this time.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the incident or video from the time of the incident to call police at 902-490-5020. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or using the P3 Tips App.

Sexual assault investigations are complex. As part of our victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to sexualized violence, we work closely with victims to determine if they wish to proceed with an investigation and charges. Police must also ensure the victim’s privacy is upheld and their well-being is fully considered.
