OPP, Toronto police looking for man
Toronto police believe a sexual assault that took place in Collingwood may be linked to the same suspect sought for a 2015 assault.
OPP sexual assault investigators and Toronto police are seeking the public's assistance with an ongoing multi-jurisdictional investigation.
On Tuesday, July 28, 2015, at 1 a.m., in the Dufferin Street and Rogers Road area of Toronto, a 23-year-old woman was approached from behind, dragged into a laneway and sexually assaulted.
On Jan. 1, 2017, at 1:50 a.m., OPP responded to a report that a female had been pulled into a vehicle and sexually assaulted 20 minutes earlier on Birch Street and Second Street in Collingwood.
The suspect in the Collingwood incident is a man, brown, in his late 20s to early 30s, of average build with a large mid-section, with a thin beard, standing 5'6” to 5'7" and wearing a blue t-shirt, black pants and a black baseball cap with a white logo.
He was driving a 2005-2010 four-door silver, grey or tan-coloured sedan with black steel rims.
Toronto police sex crimes unit and OPP Criminal Investigation Branch are conducting a joint investigation into these sexual assaults.
