TORONTO -- Cops are on the hunt for a man who sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl outside a TIFF event Saturday.
The victim was standing outside Roy Thomson Hall around 5:45 p.m. with a large group of people when the assault took place.
Life of Crime, a movie starring Jennifer Aniston and Tim Robbins, premiered at 8 p.m. at that location.
Toronto Police spokesman Const. Wendy Drummond said investigators believe an unidentified male witnessed the assault.
“He hasn’t come forward as of yet,” she said. “Our appeal is to that person to come forward.”
The assailant, who fled, is described as white, 5-foot-6 and between the ages of 45 and 55. He was wearing a blue baseball cap with “Blackcomb Whistler SRT” printed on it.
“That hat is very specific and somebody, family members or neighbours, may recognize somebody that they know with that hat,” Drummond said Monday.
