Suspect(s) approach older women asking for hugs and kisses
Calgary Police are hoping the public can assist them with investigations into two incidents that occurred in the city’s southeast.
On Sunday, March 4, at about 4:30 p.m., a 78-year old woman was walking in the 0-100 block of Penworth Place S.E., when a young man approached her and tried to kiss her. The teen then tried to push the woman into the bushes, however, a passerby intervened and the suspect left the area on his bicycle.
The suspect in this incident is described as an Aboriginal teen, about 13-14 years old, approximately 5’4″ tall, with a skinny build. He was wearing a bike helmet, blue jacket, blue jeans, and was carrying a blue backpack. He was riding a rusty-coloured bike.
On Friday, March 9, Calgary Police were called about a second, similar incident where a woman in her 60’s was followed by a teenage boy who was on a bike. The boy made inappropriate comments to her and continued to follow her as she walked in the area of Penbrooke Drive and 4 Ave S.E., during the early afternoon. He made comments that he wanted to kiss and hug her and then left the area.
The suspect in this incident is described as an Aboriginal teenage boy, between 16 and 17 years old. He has a heavy build and was riding a bicycle and wearing a blue helmet. A sketch artist has done a rendering of the suspect.
Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods: TALK: 1-800-222-8477 TYPE: tttTIPS.com TEXT: tttTIPS to 274637
