Man sexually assaulted


Ottawa police aren't saying much about a sexual assault in Centretown, where a man was allegedly attacked by another man yesterday.

Police said the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. in the area of Bank St. and Gladstone Ave. The victim was walking when the unknown attacker forced him into an isolated area, police said.

Police said they won't confirm the alleged victim's age, or exactly where the assault happened.


No weapon was used in the assault, police said.

The suspect is described as black, 5-foot-10, with a medium build, "pronounced stomach," shaved head and possible facial hair. He spoke English, possibly with an accent. Police said he was wearing a T-shirt, khaki shorts and sandals.

Anyone with information can call Det. Nicole St. John at 613-236-1222, ext. 5150.
