UPDATE:  Saskatoon Police have arrested a 22-year-old male in connection with the sexual assault referenced below.

Police are looking for a male suspect after a sexual assault on May 23 at the University of Saskatchewan. From the Saskatoon Police:

At approximately 1:00 p.m. on May 23, 2012, the female victim was on campus when she was approached by a male. He convinced her to attend a nearby parking lot off of Seminary Crescent. When they arrived, the suspect sexually assaulted the female before fleeing on foot. The suspect is described as having dark skin and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black shirt with a dark blue or black jacket, and white sunglasses. The victim wasn’t physically harmed.

This is not the first time a woman has allegedly been assaulted at or near the university. A 27-year-old man was charged in March with the sexual assault of a non-student who said she was taken back to a University of Saskatchewan residence on New Year’s Eve and violently raped.
