Toronto police are investigating after reports that a 13-year-old girl was pulled into a closet at an all-ages event Friday and sexually assaulted by four 16-year-old men.
According to police, the girl was at an event near Kipling Ave. and Finch Ave. W. when, just before midnight, she was pulled into a storage closet by one man and sexually assaulted by four men.
Police said security personnel interrupted the assault and the four suspects fled.
All four suspects are described as black and 16 years old. One, who is about as 6 feet tall, was wearing a grey toque. Another was wearing a black leather jacket, while one other suspect was wearing green.
Meanwhile, police are also investigating two separate incidents of sexual assault, both occurring after the suspect offered the victim a ride in his car.
The first occurred on April 10, when a 22-year-old woman accepted a ride from a man while downtown on Queen St. W.
Police said the man drove her to the Leslie St. and Lawrence Ave. W. area, where he sexually assaulted her.
The suspect is described as 25 to 30 years old. He has brown skin, short dark hair, a full beard and a medium build. He was driving a white, four-door car.
The second assault took place around 3 a.m. on April 16. Police said a 22-year-old woman met a man at an after-hours bar near Oakwood Ave. and Vaughn Rd.
The man then offered to drive the woman home, but instead took her to a home near Murray Ross Pkwy. and Sentinel Rd. Police said the woman was able to flee from the home, but was chased down by the man and brought to a field, where she was sexually assaulted.
The suspect is in his mid twenties, and has brown skin, a slim build and black corn rows. He is around five-foot-seven and 175 pounds. He was wearing a grey sweatshirt at the time.
Anyone with information on any of the assaults is asked to contact police at 416-808-7474, or anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
