A 34-year-old male sus­pect has been ar­rested for the sex­ual as­sault of a 32-year-old fe­male vic­tim. On Nov. 13, at ap­prox­i­mately 8 p.m. the vic­tim was at the Shep­pard West sub­way sta­tion when she was ap­proached by a sus­pect who sex­u­ally as­saulted her. The Toronto Police Ser­vice (TPS) was then in­formed and re­leased se­cu­rity cam­era im­ages of the male sus­pect. On Nov. 19, police were able to iden­tify the sus­pect based on tips pro­vided by the pub­lic. He was ar­rested and charged.

A per­son pos­ing as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from “Canada Im­mi­gra­tion” called a vic­tim in 53 Di­vi­sion in Novem­ber and in­formed him there was a war­rant for his ar­rest. A de­mand was made for pay­ment in bit­coin. When the vic­tim did not com­ply, he re­ceived a sec­ond call from a per­son claim­ing to be a mem­ber of Toronto Police Ser­vice (TPS), stat­ing there was a war­rant for the vic­tim’s ar­rest. The vic­tim then no­ti­fied TPS, wherein an of­fi­cer ad­vised that both calls were fraud­u­lent.

A 26-year-old male sus­pect has been ar­rested af­ter al­legedly as­sault­ing two TTC pas­sen­gers at the Spad­ina sub­way sta­tion. On Nov. 17, at ap­prox­i­mately 1:45 p.m., a sus­pect sprayed an un­known sub­stance on two vic­tims trav­el­ling on the sub­way. One suf­fered red­ness and ir­ri­ta­tion to the eyes and was taken to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. On Nov. 19, at 4 p.m., of­fi­cers ar­rested a male sus­pect and charged him with two counts of ad­min­is­ter­ing a nox­ious sub­stance and as­sault with a weapon.
