Public helps crack the case

Several months ago, a woman reported being inappropriately touched by a man while riding a bus in Ottawa. This week he was arrested, thanks to a police appeal to the public, which included a photo of the suspect. The suspect has been charged with one count of sexual assault and will appear in court in March. Kudos to her for reporting him, to the police for taking her complaint seriously, and to the members of the public who helped catch him.

By the way, he is 53, the woman is 29. It makes me feel extra icky each time I read about older men groping and grinding on women young enough to be their daughters.

    Harumph! Him being arrested doesn’t mean anything in Canada. He’ll likely get a warning and/or pay a small fine. The Canadian “justice” system doesn’t give a fart about women’s rights.
