Toronto Police are looking for the public’s help in identifying a taxi driver wanted in connection with an alleged sexual assault over the NBA All-star Weekend.
According to police, the driver, who identified himself as Ali, picked up a 26 year old woman as a fare on February 13th.
The man then drove the woman around the downtown area of Toronto, while picking up other fares.
Police say the woman told investigators that the pair continued to socialize and consume alcohol throughout the evening before attending the Holiday Inn at 600 Dixon Road at around 1 a.m.
It is there that the alleged sexual assault took place.
The man is described as 28 years old and 5’10” tall.
He was wearing light-blue jeans, a Pittsburgh baseball hat, and a black zip-up jacket with a maroon hoodie underneath.
A security camera image of the man has been released by police and anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7474 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
