3. Screamfest – Sexual Assualt
Case # 14401327  

On Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014, at approximately 9 p.m., a teenage girl was working as an actor at Screamfest located on the Stampede Grounds at 1410 Olympic Way S.E. when she was sexually assaulted by a customer. 

The victim was positioned by a wall, in costume, in order to scare customers walking through the “haunted” house. She was standing completely still when a group of approximately six individuals came into her area. 

A man from this group approached the victim slowly, as if checking to see if she was real, before he leaned over the cart she was using as a prop and grabbed her breast. The victim said “don’t touch…” and attempted to back away but was only able to move back a step or two against the wall. The man kept his hand on the victim’s breast for a few more seconds then looked at his friends, laughed and walked away with the group. 

The young victim immediately reported the incident to her supervisors, one of which spoke directly with the group and advised the suspect that he had to leave Screamfest. 

At this time another man in the group became verbally aggressive towards the manager, berating and swearing at her. Stampede security was then called and the entire group was then escorted off of the grounds. 

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 20 to 25 years old, 6’ tall with a slim build. 

Photos of this suspect may be available at a later date. 

Anyone with information as to the identity of this individual or about this crime is asked to call Cst. Jocelyn Woynar in the District 7 office at 403-428- 6700, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
