University alerts students to alleged sexual assault

Suspect described as Caucasian male with short brown hair, approximately five feet nine inches in height

The University of Toronto is urging students, staff, and faculty to be on alert for the suspect in an alleged sexual assault.

According to a community alert sent out to members of the university community at approximately 10:00 pm, a female student “reported that she was touched inappropriately by an unknown male” on the St. George campus around 4:00 pm on Tuesday. The suspect fled.

The university issued a community alert earlier on September 30 regarding the suspect, warning students about “an individual who is exposing himself while on the St. George campus grounds.”

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with short brown hair, and is approximately five feet nine inches in height.

He was seen wearing a black-brimmed baseball hat with a brown toque over top. He was also seen wearing dark baggy clothing, and is possibly carrying a black knapsack or duffle bag.

Members of the university community are advised not to approach the suspect, and to report any sightings to campus police immediately. Toronto Police are also investigating.

Update (Thursday, October 2): An arrest has been made in connection with the case.
