Around 5pm on Sunday December 6, the 45-year-old woman was doing her washing the at the large apartment building on Racecourse Road when a man walked into the laundry and sexually assaulted her.

The woman yelled out for help, and after a person in the building nearby heard her cries and responded, the offender fled.
