Winnipeg man charged with Wolseley break-in linked to multiple indecent acts, police say

A Winnipeg man is in custody and charged with committing an indecent act in connection with a break-and-enter and attempted sexual assault at a Wolseley home this summer.

Sex crimes investigators have also linked the suspect to two other indecent incidents in the past year.

The Wolseley incident took place July 31, police said, and involved a man breaking into the home while two women were inside, committing an indecent act, then trying to force himself onto one of the victims. The woman was able to fend him off, and he fled the scene before police could arrive.

The 24-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday, and has also been charged for an October 2021 indecent act in an apartment block laundry room, as well as an incident in the washroom of an Ellice Avenue Legion, less than a week before the Wolseley break-in.
