The victim of a recent assault in Mississauga was an employee for the Peel District School Board (PDSB), according to the board.

On Thursday, March 18, police reported that they were investigating an assault against a woman sitting in her vehicle in the Montevideo Rd. and Battleford Rd. area.

She was not physically injured, police say.

The PDSB says the assault happened against a PDSB staff member upon her returning to the parking lot at West Credit Secondary School.

“A letter was sent out to the staff and families regarding this incident and reminding families of safety practices when approached by strangers,” the board said.

“Extra security patrols were provided to the school as well.”

The motivation behind the assault is still unknown.

The suspect is described as a white male between 30 and 45 years of age with a heavy build and light-coloured hair. He was last seen wearing a navy blue jacket and jeans.

The investigation is ongoing.
