A pregnant woman says she was attacked several times over the last month by a man who harassed her each time he ran into her while out for a jog.
The woman, who wears a hijab, was reportedly struck by the stranger as he jogged past her on Yonge Street on Feb. 25. At the time, he also made some comments to her that she then reported to police.
The same man attacked her again on a different day, this time striking her with both hands as he ran south past her on Yonge Street, near Eglinton Avenue, Toronto police say.
Police say the same man criminally harassed the woman on five other occasions.
However, detectives believe she’s not the only victim. They have released a photo of a suspect in hopes more people will come forward with information.
Meanwhile, police were able to arrest a suspect on March 25.
UPDATE: A peace bond was signed in this case and the Crown dropped the charges.
