Police are asking the public for help identifying a man wanted in connection to an alleged sexual assault at a Dairy Queen in northeast Calgary Monday evening.
Around 5:15 p.m., police said a 16-year-old female employee was approached by a man while cleaning the men's washroom at the Dairy Queen at 1906 Centre Street N.E.
In a release, police said the man told the teen he needed to use the bathroom so she she left and began cleaning the women's washroom.
It's alleged the man then followed the employee into the women's washroom, pushed her into a corner and touched her inappropriately while holding his hand over her mouth.
The man then fled the restaurant after the victim managed to loosen her attacker's grip and call her co-workers for help.
Police described the suspect as an Indigenous man in his late 20s, approximately six foot three inches tall with a slim build.
He had black and bleached-orange hair sticking out from underneath a black and white flat-brimmed ball cap.
He was also wearing a black hoodie, a black shirt, black and white runners, black pants, and was carrying a computer bag.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers.
