A York University student has been charged with one count of sexual assault after an incident that occurred in the university’s Scott Library. Aaron Zukewich, 21, is currently awaiting a bail hearing.
On September 15, a 23-year-old female student reported to York security that she was followed by a man into a secluded section of the library and sexually assaulted. She was not injured.
In a similar incident on Sept. 18, an anonymous female caller reported that she had been sexually assaulted in the library. She left the library before police could interview her.
Security located a suspect and notified the police. Zukewich was linked with the first assault and charged.
Police are trying to determine if there were any other incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 416-808-3104. More information can be found at the York Security website: www.yorku.ca/security/CampusAlerts.
