Suspect Last Seen in Brampton After Student Sexually Assaulted


A man in his 20s is being hunted by Peel police after a York University student was allegedly sexually assaulted on a bus.

The incident took place on Sept. 29 at 8:30 p.m.

That’s when the female victim got on a bus in Toronto’s Keele St. and Pond Rd. area.

The victim sat beside a man near the back of the bus.

Investigators allege he “quickly began to make sexual advances towards the victim.”

The victim was sexually assaulted on the bus on two different occasions by the same suspect, say police.

She moved to the front of the bus and asked the driver to phone police.

The suspect exited the bus at Queen St. and Kennedy Rd. in Brampton, and began walking eastbound on Queen.

He’s described as South Asian, mid 20's, standing 5-foot-10 with a medium build.

He had a dark, trimmed beard.

He was wearing a blue baseball cap, grey sweater, blue jeans, and was carrying a blue backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call the 22 Division criminal investigation bureau at (905) 453-2121 ext. 2233. Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by visiting, or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) with the word "PEEL" and then your tip.
