Regina police have released photographs and a composite drawing of a tractor-trailer driver who is a suspect in a sexual assault and kidnapping case.

Police said the offences allegedly occurred on June 18, somewhere between Regina and western Manitoba.

The alleged victim is a 22-year-old woman who said she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by the driver of a semi-trailer. The man had offered to give her a ride home after she came out of a Regina nightclub.

The woman said she was driven to an unknown location where the physical and sexual assaults began.

The suspect finally allowed the victim to leave the truck near Kirkella, Man., just east of the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, the police said.

At that point, the RCMP in Virden received a 911 call. When they arrived, they found the woman suffering from injuries consistent with a physical attack.

Police released images of the suspect taken from video surveillance at a bar in the 1100 block of Park Street on Regina's east side.

An RCMP specialist created a composite sketch based on information from the woman.

The suspect is described as a short Caucasian man, weighing about 140 pounds, with dark blonde hair and a goatee.

It's believed the man was driving a dark blue or purple semi-trailer, hauling a load of logs at the time.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Regina police at 306-777-6500, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or any RCMP detachment.
