Police arrest man after kidnapping of sexual assaults near York University


Police have arrested a man in connection with a series of sexual assaults near York University in the last two months.

For investigative reasons, Toronto police said they are not divulging details about the man arrested, or the charges he faces. He was arrested Friday.

Police issued a security alert Friday after five women were sexually assaulted near the university since October.

Each time, the women managed to escape.

"We have a predator on the loose who is attacking the women behind," insp. Domenic Sinopoli told reporters at a news conference on Friday.

Police also released a security video showing the suspect walking in the area.
