Man charged in GO Train sex assault
A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection to the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl aboard a GO Train last Wednesday.
CP24 reports Whitby resident Christopher Fraser was identified as a case suspect. Fraser was subsequently arrested a week after the attack, on Wednesday, February 13.
Police say the teen was commuting on the Lakeshore East line when she saw a man who looked to be photographing her with his cell phone. According to CP24, police allege Fraser sexually assaulted the victim as the train neared the Rouge Hill station, and briefly followed her thereafter.
The suspect faces charges of sexual assault, criminal harassment and voyeurism, and is due to appear in court on Thursday morning.
Blue Jays pitcher on life without pit bulls
New Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle will be moving to the T-Dot-O solo once the major league season starts, because one of his dogs will be unable to join him.
CityNews reports his wife Jamie, and two children, Braden and Brooklyn, along with his four dogs will continue to live in their home just outside of Miami. Buehrle’s dog Slater is a pit bull, and there is currently a pet owner ban on the breed in Ontario.
Intent on bringing awareness to the breed ban, Buehrle also told CityNews he does not want to turn it into a big story, although not having his family in the city, quote, “Does suck.”
Buehrle was acquired by Toronto from the Miami Marlins, and previously skirted a similar dog breed ban in Miami by living adjacent to the city.
