Hamilton Police are investigating another sexual assault near McMaster University; the second in three days, and police believe the same suspect may be responsible.
The first happened last Thursday night at 11:30 in the area of Sussex and Emerson Streets, when a woman was grabbed from behind; the suspect covering her mouth and sexually assaulting her.
She managed to get away after falling backwards and screaming. Two witnesses gave chase but the suspect got away.
Then on Sunday, just before midnight, a female was walking in the area of Emerson Street at Ward Avenue when an unknown male grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her. She screamed and the suspect let go and was last seen running northbound on Emerson Street.
He’s described as Asian, 5’6″ to 5″10″, of medium build, late teens to early 20’s with shaggy black hair and black wire-framed glasses.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hamilton Police Detective Michelle Moore at 905-540-5545 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
