A woman was walking on the Harte Trail at approximately 6:00pm on October 24 when she crossed paths with a man walking in the opposite direction. They continued walking away from each other but a short time later she heard the sound of footsteps running towards her.
She turned to see the man approaching her while he was trying to open his pants and she knocked him to the ground where they began to struggle. The victim called for help as she fought back and when a witness came to the area the man fled.
The investigation continued by members of the Sex Crimes Unit who identified a suspect.
At approximately 11:05 p.m., the suspect was located at a residence in the 600 block of Harstone Road and was placed under arrest.
18 year-old Arnez Goodman of Winnipeg, has been charged with sexual assault.
