Sketch released to help identify a suspect in an attempted grabbing

EPS File #:14-130955
The Edmonton Police Service is asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect related to an attempted grabbing on Sept 20, 2014.
The suspect is described as a South Asian or Middle Eastern male, 30 to 35 years of age, and is about 5’6” tall. He has a thin build, short black hair with some grey on the sides, brown eyes and was clean shaven. He was seen wearing a waist length grey jacket, dark blue pants, and black shoes.

On Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 a 25-year-old female reported she was approached by a lone male at the Lakewood Transit Center at approximately 8:45 a.m. The male allegedly grabbed the female and demanded that she come with him. When the female began to scream for help, the male fled on foot.

“We’ve reached a point in the investigation where we are now asking public to identify the man in sketch,” says Staff Sgt. Marc Cochlin with Southeast Division. “Although this crime took place two months ago, someone may recognize the man in the composite sketch.”

If you have any information on this or any other crime, please contact the Edmonton Police Service Complaint Line at 780-423-4567 or the Edmonton Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or submit your tip online. Please reference the EPS file number when possible.
