Posted on 29 January 2024 by Ryan Dahlman

Lethbridge Police have charged a 57-year-old Coaldale man following incidents at a local grocery store where two women and two young girls were sexual assaulted.

On January 20 police responded to a sexual assault complaint at Superstore along the 3500 block of Mayor Magrath Drive South. Investigation determined a 46-year-old woman and her two daughters – under the age of 16 – were followed around the store by an unknown male and sexually assaulted. The male followed each of the victims as they attended different areas of the store and proceeded to touch them inappropriately. Upon viewing surveillance footage, police observed the male target an additional female, who has not yet been identified, and touch her inappropriately.

Images of the subject were subsequently released by police in an effort to identify him and multiple tips were received. The male attended the police station on January 26 and was arrested without incident.  

Abraham Feher Neudorf, 57, of Coaldale, is charged with four counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference and one count of criminal harassment. Neudorf has been released from custody with conditions of no contact with the victims or anyone under the age of 16 and is prohibited from attending Superstore.

Neudorf is scheduled to appear in court March 12 to answer to the charges.
