The Ottawa Police Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit is hunting for a suspect after a report of a teenage girl being inappropriately touched.
Officers were called to Naskapi Drive in the Beacon Hill area just after 4:30 Friday afternoon.
They say a 17-year-old had been approached by a man asking questions, who grabbed her before the girl managed to get away to a friend's house.
Police are on the lookout for an East Indian man in his 20's.
He's described as 6'2 with a muscular build, black "faux-hawk" hair style and stubble, wearing a blue t-shirt and dark pants.
