Toronto Police are looking for a man accused of physically and sexually assaulting a young woman, and then robbing her at gunpoint.
Police say it happened about 4:20 a.m. last Saturday, Nov. 5, in the area of Yonge and Gerrard Sts. After assaulting the woman, the man, who police say was armed with a gun, then “forcibly removed” the 18-year-old woman’s belongings, and fled on Gerrard St. W.
According to a description provided by police, the man is in his early 20s, thin build, about 6’0″ tall, with an olive complexion. He was wearing a purple tracksuit, black jacket with hood, dark baseball hat with light-coloured brim and black shoes.
Police are asking the public not to approach the suspect, who they say is dangerous and may be armed, and to call 911 if they see him.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Toronto Police at 416-808-7474 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477) (online at www.222tips.com).
