The 15-year-old accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women in Toronto’s Bloor and Christie area has been served with additional sex assault charges after two more victims came forward.

The teen was arrested in late October and charged with 14 counts of sexual assault and two counts of criminal harassment in relation to a string of sexual assaults in which women were attacked from behind as they walked at night.

Toronto police said Monday that two additional sexual assault charges have been laid against the boy after two more assault reports were filed.

The allegations stem from incidents near Grace and Harbord streets on Aug. 18, and Aug. 23 on Christie Street north of Bloor Street West, police told CBC News.

The teen has been kept in custody since his arrest, despite his family's contention that he is innocent.
