    Canada - Newmarket ON, 4 sexual assaults of small statured women, possible link 2015

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toront...-say-1.3252788

    "Police investigators are on the hunt for a suspect who they believe is responsible for four sexual assaults dating back to August in Newmarket.

    York Regional Police Const. Andy Pattenden says the force is especially concerned because the assaults seem to be increasing in severity. The attacks have been happening in the area north of Upper Canada Mall, near Davis Drive West and Yonge Street.

    In a news release, police are warning the public to use extra caution when travelling in that area, be aware of surroundings and avoid being distracted.

    York Regional Police each case being investigated appears to involve a suspect targeting "small-statured, thin females who may be distracted by using their mobile phones or listening to music through headphones."

    "October 13, 2015

    A sexual assault in Newmarket Tuesday has police looking into whether there may be a serial prowler on the loose.

    Details on Tuesday’s incident, which occurred in the area of Yonge Street and Green Lane at around 11:30 a.m., were not immediately provided.

    Police have confirmed the suspect description is similar to that provided of a man wanted in connection with four previously linked incidents which have occurred in the area.

    “Suspect is targeting females wearing headphones or distracted by their phone,” York Regional Police said in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. “Be aware of surroundings.

    “We believe the suspect is spending time pacing the neighbourhood looking for victims. Call us if you spot anyone matching the description of the suspect in the area of Yonge/Bathurst/Green Lane/Davis.”

    " In a release issued earlier this month, police said they believe the same man is responsible for the four assaults, and may be targeting “small-structured, thin females who may be distracted by using their mobile phones or listening to music through headphones.”

    The suspect is described as white, 20 to 25 years old, approximately five-foot-five, 125 to 130 pounds, with a thin build."

    " The most recent attack occurred on Tuesday morning in the area of Yonge Street and Green Lane. Police rushed to the scene, but the suspect had fled.

    Officers have set up a command post in the northwest corner of the mall as they try to track down the suspect.

    Investigators say the level of violence in the attacks has escalated. One of the victims was thrown to the ground and the suspect tried to remove her pants before a resident intervened, while others were touched inappropriately as they walked by".

    “We’re also asking all the females in the area of Newmarket to be very vigilant when you’re out walking,” said Const. Andy Pattenden. “If you can, walk in pairs. But if that’s not practical, please take the earbuds out of your ears, please refrain from using cellphones, and please be aware of your surroundings.”

    From what i gather, perp seems to attack on Tuesdays and sometimes Friday, attacks all occurred in daylight, open spaces.
    He seems to swings right arm and foot, slight limp or flat-footed right foot, imo.

    UPDATED video released.
    http://www.cp24.com/video?clipId=727596
    http://www.cp24.com/news/police-rele...rket-1.2611253

    " The latest video clip released shows a man who was walking near the location at the time and where the offence occurred, police said.

    This ‘person of interest’ is seen in the video walking in a grey hoodie and grey pants along a sidewalk.

    Police say they would like to speak to this individual.

    In a more aggressive incident that occurred on the morning of Sept. 25, police say an 18-year-old woman was walking on Aspenwood Drive when she was pushed to the ground. The suspect allegedly tried to pull clothes off the woman, before a passerby intervened and the suspect fled the scene.

    Police say they are investigating a total of five incidents that occurred between Aug. 18 and Oct. 13 in the area bounded by Highway 9, Green Lane, Yonge and Bathurst streets."

    Correction, person seen in cctv.. is a poi, who may be a witness.

    http://www.citynews.ca/2015/10/15/po...-assault-case/

    “We know they were in the area at the time, and we would basically want to speak to them and have a conversation and determine what were you [doing] in the area. Did you see, did you hear anything,” Const. Laura Nicolle told 680 NEWS.

    Since Aug. 18, there have been five similar sexual assaults near Upper Canada Mall, the latest one happened this past Tuesday.

    Police say no tip is too small.

    “We’ve received tips through a number of different means – people taking pictures, people calling in saying I think I know who this person is. It just helps us to narrow it down,” Nicolle said".

    "A new video released Tuesday, which appears to be taken from a home surveillance camera, shows the suspect following the first sex assault that took place on Aug. 18, as well as the suspect before and after an assault that occurred on Gail Park Crescent on Sept. 8 at around 2:30 p.m.

    The victim, a 17-year-old girl, can be seen walking down a sidewalk as she is followed by a man wearing what appears to be a grey hooded sweatshirt and yellow athletic shorts with a black strip on the side.

    The victim and suspect both walk off camera. A few seconds later, the suspect reappears in the frame running in the opposite direction down the pathway.

    The suspect is described as white, 20 to 25 years old, approximately five-foot-five, 125 to 130 pounds, with a thin build. He appears to pace back and forth before approaching victims and walks with a slight limp, police said."
