Lethbridge Police releasing a composite sketch of a suspect wanted in connection to the sexual assault of an eight year old boy.

Police say the boy was attending a birthday party at Henderson Lake on June 1 when he was approached by an older, unknown man. It’s alleged that the boy was offered candy and led to a nearby washroom, where he was sexually assaulted.

A witness saw a man with the boy near the water. He quickly walked away northbound when the witness called out to the boy to come back to the party.

The suspect is described as an older male with short grey hair and a medium build, wearing khaki shorts and a red plaid shirt at the time.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the composite sketch (above) is asked to contact Lethbridge Police.
