Brazilian Pan Am athlete accused of sexual assault
TORONTO — A Brazilian water polo player who competed in the Pan Am Games is wanted in an alleged sex assault in Toronto, but police say they believe he has left the country. Police say Thye Bezerra and a friend were visiting a Toronto woman in her home on July 16. They allege Bezerra sexually assaulted the woman after she went to bed. Investigators say they are seeking a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest, and note he could be arrested in another country that has a treaty with Canada. Brazil does not have such a treaty. The Brazilian men’s water polo team won silver at the Pan Am Games on July 15. Police say they identified the suspect after the team had left Toronto.
