An Uber driver has been arrested in connection to an alleged sexual assault of a teenage boy in Oshawa last month.
Durham Regional Police say the victim was picked up by the male driver on Lakeview Parks Avenue on May 29 around 12:10 a.m. when he started a brief conversation and reached over to touch the boy’s genital area.
Police say the driver then stopped the vehicle and sexually assaulted the boy. Investigators say the minor reported the incident to police the same day.
The accused, 29-year-old Ahmad Sohail, turned himself into police on Tuesday and was charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.
Police are asking anyone who may have been a victim to come forward.
