Police arrest 30-year-old Brampton man in connection to voyeurism investigation


Peel Regional Police (PRP) has made an arrest in connection to a voyeurism investigation in Brampton.

On July 25, between the hours of 3:50 p.m. and 5:17 p.m., the suspect--30-year-old Andre Lawrence--allegedly entered and exited the women's washrooms of a department store in the area of Resolution Drive and Steeles Avenue East.

During this time, Lawrence allegedly hid in one of the stalls in the women's washroom and waited until a 28-year-old woman occupied the stall next to him.

Lawrence then, allegedly, slid a cell phone under the partition to snap a picture of the woman--he fled the scene after being discovered.

Lawrence is also believed to be connected to another incident that occurred on July 27 at approximately 10:51 p.m.

The second incident occurred at a drugstore in the area of Kennedy Road South and Queen Street East. Lawrence allegedly placed his cell phone under the victim's--a 25-year-old woman--skirt before allegedly assaulting her.

Police believe Lawrence is connected to a third incident that took place on August 18 during the morning at a shopping mall in the area of Kennedy Road South and Clarence Street.

According to police, Lawrence allegedly entered and exited the women's washroom multiple times, and was caught hiding in a stall while two women were using the facilities.

Lawrence has been charged with Sexual Assault, two counts of Voyeurism, two counts of Mischief - Prevent Lawful Enjoyment, and Breach of Probation.

He was held for a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on August 18, 2020.

Investigators believe there may be additional people impacted by this investigation and are asking anyone that may have come in contact with Lawrence, or have information pertinent to this investigation to contact the 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-2121, extension 2233.
