Toronto police have made an arrest after a man was founding creeping through a woman’s bedroom close to York University.
Police allege that on July 7, 2012 and July 12, 2012 a man broke into two residences, one on the university campus and another one nearby on Assinibione Road.
On July 12, one woman woke up to find a man in her bedroom. Investigators allege that the man was trying to steal her computer and they suspected the intruder entered the bedroom through an open balcony door.
Police say that during one of the break-ins, a woman was sexually assaulted.
Kelvin Guzman, 22, is charged with two counts of break-and-enter, one count of sexual assault and one count of procession of stolen property.
The bedroom intruder investigation follows a string of sexual assaults that took place on the north Toronto campus.
Five women have stepped forward, claiming they were groped near Vari Hall, a main building on the campus that contains lecture halls, staff offices and student common spaces.
Police and school officials said they will be working to address student safety concerns in the wake of these incidents.
They have already increased the number of foot patrols, but there are no plans to increase security measures again for the time being.
