A man has been charged in the sexual assault of a teen last month.
Tamim Samimi, 20, has been charged with sexual assault and sexual interference with a youth after he allegedly placed his jacket over his and the victim’s laps on the back of a Calgary bus and proceeded to sexually assault the 15-year-old girl.
He also sexually assaulted her as she got up to leave, according to a release from the Calgary Police Service. She then sat away from him and got off the bus at the next possible stop.
The incident took place on a public bus travelling to 64th Avenue and Centre Street North from Centre Street South and 4th Avenue SE on October 1.
Samimi will next appear in court on Thursday, December 14.
