A woman in her 20s was sexually assaulted as she slept in an Algonquin College lounge early on Oct. 14.


Police are now asking the public to help them identify a suspect who was captured on surveillance cameras coming from a nearby OC Transpo station and walking the hallways of the building.


Patrol officers were called to the Woodroffe Avenue campus at 3:40 a.m.


The suspect is described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s with a slim, fit build. He was wearing an orange baseball cap with a small black logo on the front, a dark jacket, white T-shirt and light blue jeans.


Ruth Dunley, a spokeswoman for Algonquin College, said the school routinely has “security patrols in that area and security has increased their vigilance in this area since the incident.”


Students, however, were not notified of the reported sexual assault by the school itself, she said. The college only informs students when it believes there is an “imminent threat” to the school population or campus. The college is co-operating with the police investigation and is taking direction from police.
