RCMP investigate sexual assault near Frame Lake Trail
Yellowknife RCMP are investigating a reported sexual assault that occurred near the Frame Lake Trail on Saturday night.
Police say the incident occurred in conjunction with a small group partying in the area and the suspect is known to the victim.
Last year, after a string of sexual assaults on and near the trail, a public forum on safety was held with participation from the RCMP, Department of Justice, Yellowknife Health and Social Services Authority and the City of Yellowknife.
A follow-up meeting is scheduled for Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at Northern United Place.
Mayor Mark Heyck says organizations have been brainstorming solutions over the last several months and he hopes people show up to hear the proposed actions.
Police ask anyone with information about this weekend's assault to contact the Yellowknife detachment or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
