Toronto man facing charges following string of sexual assaults allegedly involving children
TORONTO -- A Toronto man who allegedly sexually assaulted a number of people, including children, earlier this month is facing charges and police believe there may be additional victims.
The first incident occurred between Oct.1 and Oct. 2 at a hotel in the area of Front Street West and York Street when a man entered the property and sexually assaulted a number of people, police said.
Ten days later, police said officers were called to the Toronto Island Ferry Terminal when a man who was standing by the entrance was reportedly approached by a stranger on a bicycle.
Police said that the man was sexually assaulted by the stranger.
Prasanna Mondal, 24, of Toronto, was subsequently arrested and charged with sexual assault. He would appear in a Toronto courtroom via video link on Oct. 13 and was released.
The very next day, police said that officers responded to a call for a suspicious incident at a daycare centre on Algonquin Island on Toronto Island.
At that time, police allege that a man was outside the facility as the children were being released and he sexually assaulted a “number of children.”
Mondal was arrested a second time and charged with sexual interference. He appeared in a Toronto courtroom via video link on Oct. 15.
Police also noted that Mondal advertises his service as a nanny on Canadiannanny.ca.
Investigators believe there may be other victims.
Anyone with information related to the incidents is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
