Police are asking the public for help identifying a man in connection to a sexual assault in southwest Calgary last month.

In a release, police said a woman was approached by an unknown man while she was waiting for a C-Train at the downtown/West Kerby LRT platform just after 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 1.

Police say the man was asking the woman for information about the train schedule when he allegedly began following and kissing the woman multiple times on her cheek and neck.

The woman pushed the man away but the man continued to touch her until the woman pushed past him and boarded the incoming train, police said.

The woman told police she saw the man approach another female on the platform. Police said security camera images taken in the area show the man approaching at least two females.

The man is described as being in his late 40s to 50s, approximately five feet seven inches tall with a heavy build and white beard. He was wearing a grey hat, black jacket, blue shirt, white trousers and brown shoes. He spoke broken English with an accent.

The second female has not yet been identified.

Anyone who knows the identity of this man, the identity of the second woman that was approached, or any other information about this incident is asked to call the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or calgarycrimestoppers.org.
