Sex assault at Seabird

Police say the suspect from a sexual assault over the weekend has been arrested and is set to appear in court this week.

A 23-year-old woman was reportedly walking in a Seabird Island neighbourhood early Sunday morning, when she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a 21-year-old man.

Police say both the victim and her assailant were Seabird Island residents.

“They were known to each other, by living in the same community, but nothing more than that,” Sgt. Mike McCarthy said Monday.

Police received a call at 3:55 a.m. and the man was arrested later that morning.

There was no warning given out in the community, McCarthy said, because the suspect was quickly arrested. He reminds everyone to be cautious of their surroundings at all times, even in areas close to home.
