Woman assaulted at Fraser River Park

Police are requesting the public's help to identify a man responsible for this morning's attack of a woman in Fraser River Park.

Around 9:00 this morning, a 52 year-old woman was walking her dog in the area of West 75th Avenue and Tidewater Place when she was assaulted by an unidentified man.

The woman was dragged a short distance but managed to scream, drawing attention to her attacker, police said.
