On two occasions, police said they responded to a call for a sexual assault on the Gatineau Hydro Corridor Trail.
Later in the month, police responded to two more calls about sexual assaults on the East Don River Trail.
Police said the suspect in these assaults is described as a teenage boy, about 5’5”, of thin build, with short brown or light blond hair. He was reported to be wearing a red T-shirt, black shorts, a backpack of distinctive brown camoflauge-like design, and riding a dark mountain bike.
On Thursday, police announced they have been granted judicial authorization to release photos of the unknown teenager in order to identify him. The photos can be found on the Toronto Police Service website.
The authorization will expire on Monday, Aug. 8, at 12 p.m., police said. “The photograph can no longer be published/broadcast at that time under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-4100, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), or at www.222tips.com.
