Sexual Assault Investigation - 1100 Block 20th Street West

Saskatoon Police are investigating a report of a sexual assault that occurred Sunday morning.

A 20-year-old woman reported to Police that on November 18, 2018, between 5 and 6:15 a.m., she was walking along 20th Street West when she was pulled into a white van with two male occupants, a driver and passenger. The passenger was in the back of the van and attempted to sexually assault the victim. During the attempted assault, the victim struck the suspect multiple times to stop the assault from progressing. The van then stopped in the 1100 block of 20th Street West and she exited and fled to her apartment nearby where she called Police.
