Three minutes later, police say the man entered an 18-year-old woman’s home and exposed himself again. About twenty minutes later, at 4:03 p.m., he walked into the women’s washroom of a building and again exposed himself to a 20-year-old woman.
All of the women fled and contacted police.
A week later, on Oct. 23, police say the same man grabbed at a 39-year-old woman and sexually assaulted her as she was walking near Phoebe and Huron Sts. at around 3:20 p.m.
The suspect is described as white, with a thin build, brown beard, short brown hair and a receding hairline. During the Oct. 23 incident, he was wearing a purple hoodie or jacket with a hood, white shirt underneath, dark pants and dark running shoes.
