Toronto police say they’ve arrested one of two men wanted in connection to a sexual assault that occurred in a stairwell of an Entertainment District condo on Wednesday morning.
According to police, on Wednesday, July 10 at 12:45 am, a 19-year-old woman entered a condo building elevator in the King and Bathurst Street area. At this time, two men entered the elevator behind her.
Police said one of the men tried to steal her cell phone and a struggle ensued. The woman, however, was able to maintain possession of her phone.
The man then produced a handgun and “successfully” robbed her of the phone, according to police.
The woman was then “violently” dragged out of the elevator and sexually assaulted in a nearby stairwell by both men.
Following the assault, the two men made their way to the underground parking garage and fled in a vehicle in an unknown direction.
