"Unfortunately, we are not in a position to provide additional details out of respect and privacy for the child. As such, all we can confirm is that the assault was sexual in nature."



Edmonton Police are searching for a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl on a northeast playground last week.

According to EPS, the girl was playing at the Evansdale School playground some time between June 14 and 17 when a man who called himself Kevin grabbed her, sexually assaulted her and ran away.
