Woman sex­u­ally as­saulted in ve­hi­cle

An SUV she mis­took as Uber picked her up af­ter a fight


Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses af­ter a 19-year-old woman was al­legedly sex­u­ally as­saulted early Sun­day.

The woman was in the area of King St. W. and Port­land St. at about 1:30 a.m. Sun­day when she was in­volved in a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion with an­other woman, po­lice say.

One of the women left the scene af­ter the al­ter­ca­tion, but the other re­mained. A short time later, a white SUV pulled up with two men in­side. The 19-year-old en­tered the ve­hi­cle, mis- tak­ing it for an Uber.

Once in­side the ve­hi­cle, the woman was sex­u­ally as­saulted by one of the men, po­lice say.

The woman was later dropped off in the area of Don Mills Rd. and Shep­pard Ave. E. at about 2:30 a.m.

Po­lice are look­ing for any­one with video footage of the al­ter­ca­tion or who may have wit­nessed the woman ex­it­ing the ve­hi­cle.

The ve­hi­cle is de­scribed as a white, 2009 Ford Es­cape with tinted win­dows, fog lights and a li­cense plate be­gin­ning with the let­ter “C.”
