RCMP Norway House Detachment is seeking the public’s assistance with information to identify a male suspect involved in the abduction and sexual assault of an 8-year-old Winnipeg girl in the community of Norway House. On August 2, 2012, at about 5 pm, the young girl was playing by the road in the Rossville area of Norway when she was picked up and driven to a secluded area on the Fort Island area of Norway House where she was sexually assaulted. After the abduction, about an hour later, the suspect dropped her off at a relative’s residence and the police was contacted. Police have obtained a sketch of the suspect. The suspect was described as aboriginal in appearance, thin, with long hair, and pockmarked face. The suspect vehicle is described as a dirty dark coloured pick-up truck.

By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:
- A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.
- There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.
- A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.
For a fuller explanation of these principles, help us to help you by reading and understanding the “Tipster Information” on the Canadian Crime Stoppers website.
