Hamilton police continue to investigate an attempted sexual assault on the Bruce Trail near the Kenilworth Access on June 16.

Staff Sgt. Frank Miscione says a man armed with a knife approached a woman who was walking alone on the trail at about 10:30 a.m. and forced her into a nearby area where he tried to sexually assault her. She escaped and the man fled the scene.

Police ended up increasing patrols in the area, he said.

The suspect is described as white, in his early 20s and about five-foot-seven to five-foot-eight. He was wearing a navy blue hoodie and bandana over his face.

Miscione said people should avoid approaching anyone matching the description and instead call 911.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Carolyne Rashford at 905-540-5543 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
