Man apprehended after manhunt

Man apprehended after manhunt

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Sexual Assault on Monday July 08, 2013.

A woman and girl reported that they were attacked in Toronto by a man who held them up at knife point. The woman and the girl both said that they were victims of sexual assault.

The woman who made the report is in her 20s. The attack occurred in her residence near Coxwell Avenue and Gerrard Street East. She said that the man forced his way into her home and then sexually assaulted her. The woman said that the man then sexually assaulted a young girl who was in the same home. The woman also said that the man stole some of her items and fled the scene.

Investigators who responded to the report identified a particular man and released photos to the media. They asked for the public’s help in finding him, and a full-fledged search was launched. Police said that the man should have been considered “armed and dangerous.” Officers from the Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement received several leads and tracked down the man from Toronto. The search ended in Hamilton when they apprehended the man. He will return to Toronto and face charges of sexual assault with a weapon, a charge for sexual interference, a charge for forcible confinement and a charge for breaking and entering to commit an indictable offence and robbery.

Toronto criminal defence lawyers may help individuals who are facing serious sex-related crimes. They may face long-term consequences, like a prison sentence, adding their name to a sex offender registry and the imposition of fines. A defence lawyer may be able to examine the validity of evidence or help clients negotiate for reduced charges or sentences.
