Nova Scotia RCMP say the assault happened while the woman was walking along Holland Drive in Fletchers Lake at around 8:10 p.m. on April 21.

Police say the woman yelled and got away while the man ran away into the woods.

A police canine unit searched the area but was not able to locate the suspect, who is described as white with a slim build and light brown hair.

Police believe he’s between the ages of 17 and 22 years old.

He was wearing a light pink hoodie, black jogging pants with a white stripe and a black baseball cap, according to police.
