Yesterday morning, around 7 AM on April 7, a man shared on social media that he was allegedly sexually assaulted while using the Eglinton Station bathroom.
While the victim, known for his work as a reputable local dentist and international male model, was using the bathroom urinal inside Eglinton station, the perpetrator allegedly approached him from behind. At first, he thought nothing of this, just that he likely needed to go urgently, and that was when then the assailant allegedly exposed himself. The victim then tried to walk past the assailant to go wash his hands and he turned around and went on to fondle the victim from behind.
Luckily, the victim was able to quickly react and hurry out of the bathroom to escape any further assault.
Physical Description of the Assailant
The perpetrator is described as male, early to mid 20s, around 5’10”, with olive skin and short dark brown hair. He was said to be wearing a backpack with a broken back pocket zipper.
It Takes Courage.
Although many could agree, that it’s not every day that men are likely to open up and share such an incident with anyone, let alone publicly, the victim bravely took to Instagram to share stories of the incident, in periodic updates, and courageously decided to report what happened to the police.
“I was angry before but now I’m just confused…I can’t just sit here and do nothing.”The victim shared their thoughts through an instagram story
After an alleged, slightly less than helpful encounter with Toronto police, the victim was able to file a report and give a detailed video interview. TTC footage is being collected and will hopefully provide more information on the attacker.
Be On The Look Out At Eglinton Station
People using TTC washrooms, especially men and especially at Eglinton Station, are cautioned to be on the lookout for this creep. If seen, please contact the Toronto Police as soon as possible.
- Please be careful out there Toronto.
- Assault is common amongst men too, and it’s okay for them to talk about it too. It’s courageous!
- When possible, try to avoid waiting to make a report as the Police will have a greater chance of finding the perpetrator, to avoid it happening to someone else.
