Alaa Hejazi, 20, turned himself in after his image was published and broadcast in the media one day after the alleged assaults.
The charges are:
- breaking and entering
- threatening bodily harm
- sexual assault with a weapon
- threatening death
- possession of property obtained by crime
The incident happened in the Lawrence Avenue West and Avenue Road area at about 10: 30 a.m. on Monday, when a man pretending to sell newspapers forced his way inside a home.
Two women, one 25 and one 30, were then sexually assaulted at knifepoint, police say.
On Tuesday police released a picture of the suspect aboard a TTC bus.
Det.-Sgt. Leanne Papizewski of the police sex crimes unit said she doesn't have any information that Hejazi has been involved in other crimes.
"It appears random," she told a news conference at Toronto Police headquarters. "But we will continue to investigate."
Hejazi is due to make a court appearance on Wednesday.Suggest a correction
