The Whistler RCMP are looking for information regarding an assault on a 20-year-old Whistler woman at approximately 2:30 a.m. on May 14.
According to the RCMP, the woman was walking on the Valley Trail in Whistler Cay when she was approached by a lone male.

The RCMP have released a composite drawing of the suspect.
