A man was arrested in Pickering yesterday and charged in three separate sexual assaults in Toronto.

“Unfortunately we can’t disclose [how he was apprehended], that is part of the investigation, but he was arrested after 7 [p.m.] and it was in Pickering,” said Const. Wendy Drummond.

On Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Yonge Street and Wellesley Street West area, a man approached an 18-year-old woman, befriended her and took her to a nearby building where he committed the sexual assault.

The next morning at 3 a.m. a man approached a 40-year-old woman in the Dundas Street East and Parliament Street area, took the woman to a commercial building and sexually assaulted her.

Days later on Aug. 29 at 2 a.m. in the Yonge Street and Gloucester Street area, a man approached a 26-year-old woman and proceeded to take her to a nearby building and sexually assault her.

Drummond said, “We believe there are more victims that have yet to come forward.”

Thomas Reardon, 34, of Toronto, is charged with three counts of sexual assault; three counts of threatening bodily harm; two counts of fail to comply probation; forcible confinement and theft under.

He is scheduled to appear in College Park Court on Friday.
