He is “25-35, brown complexion, approximately 5’7” – 5’9”, with a small build, and a short beard”. He “suffered an injury to his eye during the sexual assault.”

The same suspect is alleged to have assaulted a 17-year-old girl on January 1, 2017, in Collingwood, and a 23-year-old woman on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 in Toronto.
