Police have issued a public safety alert after an incident Monday afternoon at the Toronto Public Library at Fairview Mall.
A 14 year old girl was studying in the library when a man, unknown to her, sat down next to her.
It’s alleged he engaged her in inappropriate conversation and sexually assaulted her during that time.
The victim left the library, and the man followed her out. She then returned and called police.
The suspect has been described as a man in his mid-20s, 6′, 185 lbs and a slim build. He has short, straight, light-brown hair, receding hairline with sideburns and clean-shaven.
He was wearing brown lens sunglasses, a lime-green T-shirt, dark-blue/black loose-fitting jeans and grey shoes with white soles and laces. He was carrying a briefcase-style leather bag.
