York Regional Police are asking the public to help them identify two suspects wanted in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Markham.

Police say that at approximately 8 p.m. on June 2, a 15-year-old girl was walking alone in the area of Steeles Avenue and Middlefield Road when a man driving a black, four-door car pulled up to the intersection and began chatting with her.

They say that after the teen got into the car, the suspect picked up a male friend from his home, and the two took the teen to a hotel room where she was sexually assaulted by both suspects.

On Wednesday, police released a composite sketch of the suspect who was driving the vehicle. They are asking anyone who recognizes the man to contact them at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7071, or to contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police say the second suspect is brown, in his early 20s, about 5'10" and has short, black hair.
