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.
