Maple Creek RCMP are searching for a man who attacked a woman early Sunday morning.
At 3:45 a.m. on Aug. 14, a young female was walking home southbound on Harder Street towards Fifth Avenue when she was approached by the man.
They engaged in a short conversation, after which the woman continued on her way. The male then grabbed her from behind, choking and dragging her off the street. She screamed, fought back and attempted to get away.
The attacker let her go and ran westbound into the alleyway. He is described as aboriginal in his 20s with dark skin, short dark hair, dark eyes and is approximately five foot nine with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with fancy writing on the front, black knee shorts, black runners and a black baseball hat.
Anyone with information in this incident is asked to contact Maple Creek RCMP at 662-5550 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
RCMP are advising the public to walk in pairs at night, know their route and ensure others know where they are and how long they will be gone.
