Richmond Hill Post - - Real Estate -

A 15-year-old Markham male was ar­rested on June 11 and charged fol­low­ing two sex­ual as­saults that took place in broad day­light in the town of Richmond Hill.

The first in­ci­dent oc­curred on May 7 when a 16year-old fe­male rid­ing a mu­nic­i­pal bus no­ticed the sus­pect mov­ing closer to her on the bus. The vic­tim then no­ticed the ac­cused per­form­ing an indecent act on him­self in front of her. She ex­ited the bus at Yonge Street and 16th Av­enue and was pur­sued by the sus­pect, who grabbed her. A strug­gle en­sued and the vic­tim made off with­out in­jury.

The sec­ond in­ci­dent oc­curred on June 2 in the area of Bayview Av­enue and Bantry Av­enue around 5:30 p.m. An 11-year-old fe­male had ex­ited a bus and no­ticed the sus­pect fol­low­ing her off the bus. The sus­pect ap­proached the vic­tim, pushed her to the ground and sex­u­ally as­saulted her. She was aided by passersby.

The sus­pect was ar­rested on June 11 with­out in­ci­dent and faces four charges re­lated to the as­saults.
