Yellowknife RCMP have released a sketch and description of the suspect of a sexual assault that happened on Sissons Court Wednesday.

The suspect is described as male, 6-feet tall, 25-30 years old; with brown eyes, a medium build, light complexion and dark brown hair with a spiky Caesar-style cut — shorter on the sides, longer and messy on top.  He was wearing a solid black T-shirt and blue jeans.

At about 7 a.m. Wednesday near Sissons Court, the suspect entered a residence and sexually assaulted a woman, then fled the scene on foot.

Police are also investigating a second sexual assault that happened two hours earlier on the Frame Lake Trail near Somba K'e Park. In that incident, a man approached a woman from behind, sexually assaulted her and then fled on foot.

Both women received treatment at Stanton Territorial Hospital.

Anyone with information about either incident or the identity of the suspect described, is urged to contact Yellowknife RCMP at 867-669-1111. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
