Police Investigating Sexual Assault on Teenager

Published on: 2015/06/10 - in Featured Releases

Detectives from the Sexual Crimes Unit in kingston are requesting assistance in identifying a male suspect in relation to a sexual assault on a 14-year-old female who accepted a ride from the man.

At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 the teenage victim was alone at the Giant Tiger store located at 811 Princess Street but needed to meet a friend at the Cataraqui Town Centre. She was outside when a beige car pulled-up and a lone male driver asked if she needed a ride.

The victim accepted but instead of going to the Cataraqui Mall the male suspect drove the victim to the LCBO parking lot located at 1280 Bath Road, off of Armstrong Road. After parking the suspect refused to let the victim out of the vehicle and then sexually assaulted her just before 9:00 p.m.

Following the assault the suspect drove off and an LCBO staff member observed the victim who appeared to be in distress.

There was apparently also a man in a nearby car who asked the victim about her well-being. Kingston Police would be interested in speaking to this male to verify and potentially obtain additional information.

The suspect is described as: Hispanic with a heavy accent, short in height, heavy-set build, olive complexion, early 20’s in age, eyes naturally squinted, short and spikey dark hair, a slight moustache and/or unshaven appearance. He was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans with a belt.

The suspect had a larger smartphone in his possession that the victim believes may have been a Samsung due to its size and rounded edges, and that the case was lime green and black in colour. The vehicle is described as beige or light-coloured and from the victim’s description appears to be similar in size and shape to that of a small to midsize sports utility vehicle (SUV).

Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Melanie Jefferies at 613-549-4660 ext. 6185 or via email at mjefferies@kpf.ca.
