West Edmonton Mall water park assault suspect under close surveillance after complaints, trial hears

A supervisor at the West Edmonton Mall water park testified Friday that a sexual assault suspect was closely watched by staff from the moment a group of girls raised the alarm about him.

Erika Bevan told court that a suspect wearing blue trunks in the wave pool was under close surveillance following the girls’ complaints.

“We always made sure we had eyes on him,” Bevan said in Edmonton provincial court.

The Crown closed its case on Friday against Soleiman Hajj Soleiman, 40, who is charged with six counts of sexual assault and six counts of sexual contact with a child.

The defence chose not to call any evidence.
