The Calgary Police Service is investigating an attempted sexual assault that occurred on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011, at approximately 10 p.m., a woman exited a bus at 52 Street and Madigan Drive N.E.
A man left the bus at the same time, walking behind the woman. A short time later the man grabbed her, said he had a knife and that he wanted to have sex with her.
The victim managed to get away, running across the street, while the culprit fled in a different direction.

The suspect is described as Aboriginal, 5’ 6” tall, with a slim build and chubby face. He was wearing a baggy, black sweater with a hood and a baseball cap.
