Another woman attacked in Whyte/Garneau area of Edmonton Read it on Global News: Global Edmonton | Another woman attacked in Whyte/Garneau area of Edmonton
Police are investigating an assault in the Whyte/Garneau area of Edmonton that they believe may be connected to seven other assaults in the area.
It was 2:30 am on Sunday, June 17th when a 22-year-old woman was assaulted while walking in the area of 111th street and University Avenue.
The woman was assaulted from behind by an unknown male, who allegedly hit her several times and attempted to pull down her skirt.
The woman screamed and was able to escape from her attacker. She did not require medical attention.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with very pale skin, in his late 20’s, between 5’8” and 5’11” with very short blond hair, medium to heavier build, and was wearing a white puffy shirt or jacket.
“The MO in this incident is very similar to the assault that occurred on April 29,” says Det. Hao Ly, one of the investigators of the series of assaults. “We believe this assault has a connection to the other incidents, but there may be more than one suspect.”
In the other seven cases, a woman was assaulted from behind while walking late at night.
Victims range in age from 20 to 60 years old.
- Assaults have taken place on the following dates in 2012:
- March 18 - 3 a.m. in the area of 84 Avenue and 107 Street
- March 20 - 11:30 p.m. in the area of 81 Avenue and 87 Street
- March 28 - 10 p.m. in the area of 81 Avenue and 85 Street
- March 31 - 2 a.m. in the area of 84 Avenue and 117 Street
- April 1 - 2 a.m. in the area of 84 Avenue and 107 Street
- April 13 - 4:30 a.m. in the area of 64 Avenue and 109 Street
- April 29 - 3 a.m. in the area of 79 Avenue and 107 Street
Investigators are also hoping to speak to a group of young men who were outside of a residence just west of 111 Street, on 80 Avenue, between 2:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Sunday morning. Police believe they may have information about the case.
“We would like to speak with these young men and we encourage them to call the non-emergency complaint line to get in touch with us,” says Det. Hao Ly.
If you have information about any of the cases, you are asked to call the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567, or you can submit information anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm
Police remind citizens that they should always be aware of their surroundings and that suspicious activity should be reported to police immediately.

Police hunt for man suspected in seven attacks on women
Someone is attacking women from behind in the Whyte Avenue area, from 75th Street to 117th Street, as far out as 64th Ave, from 10pm to 4:30am. They only have vague descriptions of the guy so far — “between five-foot-four and six-feet tall, and about 150 pounds, with a slim build. He was wearing blue jeans and might be wearing a white, black or grey hoodie” — because it’s dark and they all happened in poorly lit areas, which is most of those neighbourhoods considering all the trees and whatnot.
At least they’re not victim blaming, which has happened with EPS before.
“It’s a heinous crime. None of these women are doing anything wrong. They should be able to walk home alone but unfortunately there are people out there who do these things and we’d like to catch them,” Det. Rob Chan, with the southeast division criminal investigation unit, said Tuesday.
THANK YOU. (though it is completely ridiculous that I have to praise a police department for not victim blaming, because what the hell even is that.)
On the other hand, it makes me absolutely livid that I just had to ask my boyfriend to come meet me if it’s after dark and I’m walking to his place, because there are trees and alleys and I won’t feel safe otherwise.
Livid that these attacks are being labelled by police as “opportunistic”, because yeah, it’s dark and women are alone — god forbid a woman would ever want to walk alone, in her own neighbourhood, after grocery shopping or the bar or whatever — and this motherfucker knows he can get away with it.
Livid that they’re getting more violent, and who knows how much worse they’ll get or how many more will occur until they catch this asshole (or he gets bored, but do these fuckers ever get bored?)
Livid that some people will probably think this isn’t a huge deal, and blame the victims for walking alone and therefore asking it.
Livid that I even have to think about taking precautions.
Just. Fuck everything, sometimes.
Be safe, friends.
A interesting new Edmonton Tumblr!
“Indigenize #YEG attempts to re-present urban spaces in Edmonton from a Native Studies research and analysis perspective, and my own ways of knowing.

I needed this today. Yes, Alberta is struggling with our nutty electoral politics, but there are so many beautiful things happening here simply because of the people who are here and commit to taking care of each other, while fucking up the shit too.
how can i be grumpy when my morning started with puppy cuddles and a sunny bike ride to work? oh yeah, the internet.
while i am moving, i vow never to take that tone with alberta. the one where i look down at how horribly conservative it is and ask its residents what they are doing about it….
also the comments towards AB government politics like “…remembering why I left” and shit like that. you left cuz you’re a brat with money (most of the time). your choice, but shuttup about it. oh, and NO WHERE in Canada are politics progressive (BC I’m looking at you). every single fucking province is putting poor people in jail and exercising violent colonialist power over Indigenous people and lands, and so on. Let’s just get that straight.
Yes - Thank all of you. I’ve been really depressed and dealing with this foreboding sense of fear, in what I am certain is coming our way on Monday. That being said, I’ve never felt better about the city I live in, and its because people have chosen to stay here, to make a difference. Whether it’s political or apolitical, the way that my friends have fought to eke out something meaningful in our community has only endeared me more to Edmonton. It’s not easy all the time, but it shouldn’t be.
Thank you, Ted.
They want you to doubt global warning because they want you to forget about the rest of the world.
They insist that white is right because if you are a person of color they want you to leave.
They want you to fear the Lake of Fire because they want you to give up and give into the heat of their hate.
But they underestimate you. You are a phoenix who has already risen. Alberta is the lake of fire; you have survived the flames licking at your heels for decades. You have cried as it pushed friends to jump into the river, and driven more still to cooler climates. But you have survived, and in many cases thrived. And they hate you for it. They want you gone. They want the province for themselves.
Don’t give it to them. Claim the lake of fire as yours; commandeer the heat to unleash a wave of progress they will drown in.
Repeat not their vitriolic rhetoric. Instead link, forward, speak of possibility. Talk of the Alberta Party, Laurie Blakeman, or what an NDP majority could look like. Remind each other that out of the fire each of you has risen, not to mention, Vriend v. The Alberta Government.
Good Luck Alberta
