Edmonton Police are asking for help from the public in locating a man who’s believed to have attacked a woman earlier this month.
Police said officers were called to a reported disturbance in a townhouse, in the area of Hooke Road in northeast Edmonton, at about 6 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13.
It’s believed a male resident assaulted a 25-year-old woman, who was also living in the home.
According to police, the woman was punched and kicked – and paramedics treated her on the scene, before taking her to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect reportedly fled the scene before police arrived, and since then, he hasn’t been found.
Now, police said Gerald Paul Brown, 27, is wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault.
Brown is described as:
- 172 cm (5’8”) tall
- 74 kg (163 lbs)
- Brown eyes
- Brown hair
The suspect also has pierced ears.
Brown is also considered to have a pattern of violent behaviour, and is not to be approached.
Anyone with information on Brown’s whereabouts is asked to call the Edmonton Police Service non-emergency line at 780-423-4567 or #377 on a mobile phone.
Anonymous tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
