Police Seeking Witness Following Sexual Assault Incident in Burlington


Halton Police are seeking a witness following an alleged sexual assault incident that occurred in Burlington.

The Halton Regional Police Service Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Unit (CASA), is currently investigating a sexual assault that occurred during the evening of Canada Day, July 1, 2019.  

Police say the female victim left 'The Coop' restaurant located on Brant Street, just north of Lakeshore Road, and accepted a ride with an unknown male party.  

The victim, according to police, was sexually assaulted in the vehicle prior to being dropped off at her residence. 

"Through investigation, officers have pieced together a timeline of the victim’s evening prior to being dropped off at her residence," reads a Halton Police media release. "Officers confirmed the victim was in the parking lot of a Shell gas station located at Walkers Line and Mainway between 11:50 p.m. and 11:55 p.m. on July 1."

Now, police are asking the public for assistance in identifying a female witness and a blue four door vehicle (believed to be a Mazda). 


Police say the witness and vehicle were also at the Shell station at that time.

Investigators have determined that this female witness interacted with the victim and may be able to assist police in the investigation.   

Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Unit - Detective Sergeant Chris Newcombe at 905-465-8965 or Detective Constable Andrea Moss at 905-465-8971.
