Toronto Police have released an updated composite sketch of a suspect in a 1992 sexual assault case.  It was February 15th, 1992 in the early morning hours after Valentine’s Day celebrations when police say a 23-year-old woman was approached by a man as she sat in her vehicle near Bay Street and Temperance Street. 

Investigators say the man asked for a ride to his hotel saying he had just been robbed.  The woman was directed to a laneway in the Simcoe Street and Richmond Street West area where she was sexually assaulted by the male passenger.  The man then fled the area on foot.

He was described as Aboriginal, tanned complexion, 28-35, 5'8"-5'9", slim build, short brown hair parted at the side, with a moustache.

Toronto Police Detective Ali Ansari with the Sex Crimes Unit says police have changed the way they do composite sketches since the attack took place.

“Back then in the early 1990s the composites were produced using photographs and portions of a particular photograph would be used for the face or the eyes or the nose or the mouth.  And all of those photos would be put together to produce a composite which would be more of a composite photo than a composite sketch.” said Detective Ali Ansari.

He says that now police use forensic sketch artist who actually use the information given to them to produce a composite sketch of the suspect. 

Police are hoping this updated composite will help lead them to the suspect in this cold case.
