Last week, four female members of the York community reported unwanted physical contact on the afternoon of Thursday, July 5, 2012. In each case, a male suspect approached the woman, attempted to speak to her and made inappropriate physical contact as she walked away.

Toronto Police Service (TPS) arrested a man Monday night in connection with this investigation.

For more details, refer to the TPS news release.

Understanding how important a sense of safety is to all members of the York community, York University continues to work collaboratively with all its constituent groups to ensure a culture of safety at both of its campuses.

As always, York community members are reminded to exercise personal safety by:

  • Being aware of your surroundings and the people around you.
  • Reporting any suspicious persons or behaviour to York Security Services.
