Sexual assault in downtown Cobourg

Cobourg police are asking for the public's help in tracking down a man wanted for sexual assault.

Police say a woman was outside her downtown home Thursday when a white van pulled up and a man got out to ask for directions.

The man allegedly rubbed up against the woman and made a sexual remark before the woman told him to leave. He drove away.

The man is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5’2” with short, spiky red hair.

The white van has a licence plate similar to CCM 647, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to call 905-372-6821 ext. 2234 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously.
