A resident of La Malbaie was sexually assaulted by a delivery man from a delivery company yesterday morning. Her attacker was arrested thanks to the vigilance of one of his friends.

“He delivered a package to my neighbor’s house. I came from the grocery store and he wanted to help me get the bags in. He touched my butt three times even though I told him not to do that. He pushed on the door to enter my house. I hurried to bar the door. I showed him I was calling on my cell phone and he ran away. I had the scare of my life. I called the police to file a complaint. A friend of mine followed his car and was able to see the plate number. Which helped the police to arrest him,” specifies the victim who wishes to remain anonymous.

She is still in shock and is sharing her story to warn other women who live alone.

“The attack occurred around 11 a.m. in broad daylight in a residential area. Usually there is always a neighbor outside, but not this time. My goal is really to do prevention among other women. I didn’t expect to experience this in La Malbaie. Often in the region, we feel safe. We tell ourselves that this type of aggression only happens in big cities like Montreal or Quebec,” she explains.

The police suggested that she contact the Crime Victim Assistance Center (CAVAC), which could help her.

The Sûreté du Québec confirms the arrest of the 24-year-old man from Quebec. He was released on conditions. He will be charged with attempted break and enter and sexual assault.
