Man charged with sexual assault, robbery of sex trade worker
A 62-year-old Hamilton man has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault and robbery of a sex trade worker last week.
Police say a man approached a woman who was standing alone on Barton Street East near Earl Street around 7:40 p.m. Friday.
The two drove a few blocks to a “secluded location,” police said.
That’s where police say the man physically attacked and sexually assaulted the woman. Two people who saw the struggle called 911 and provided a description of the vehicle.
A man was arrested that same evening and charged. He remains in custody pending a bail hearing.
Ahmad Zia Durani is charged with sexual assault and robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Jason Leek of the sexual assault unit at 905-546-4614 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
