Niagara police are investigating after a hitchhiker was sexually assaulted in Fonthill.
The woman was hitchhiking on the Highway 406 on ramp at Glendale Avenue in St. Catharines Monday evening when she took a ride with a man driving a beige Chevrolet Cavalier.
Police say the man drove her to a secluded wooded area near a drive-in movie theatre on Regional Road 20 and tried to take off her clothes.
She was able to fight off her attacker and fled into the nearby wooded area and called police.
The suspect is white, 60-years-old and heavy set with a goatee, and slicked back, salt and pepper hair, and balding on top.
