An elderly resident is facing charges for two sexual assaults in Brampton.
In September 2018, police say the suspect attended a store in the area of Steeles Avenue and Highway 410 and asked an employee, a 19 year old Brampton woman, to assist him with trying on a shirt.
“When the victim refused, the suspect sexually assaulted her,” police say. “The incident was not reported to police at the time.”
On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, the suspect reportedly attended the same store and asked another employee for assistance trying on a shirt.
