The arrests of three brothers accused in the gang sexual assault of a young woman underscores the need for club goers to be on the alert in the city's entertainment district, police warn.
Toronto police spokesperson Const. Tony Vella said police believe there may be more victims and released photographs of the accused.
“If you know who they are, if you have any information, or if you’ve been victimized, we want to hear from you. Contact the investigators,” Vella said.
Police say a 22-year-old woman was attacked early Saturday morning, after she met a 26-year-old man at a nightclub. When the woman and her friends left the bar, they were allegedly followed out by the same man and two other suspects, who police say offered to drive the woman home.
The victim accepted the offer and left her friends. She was allegedly led by the men to an underground parking garage where police say she was sexually assaulted around the Windsor Street and Blue Jays Way area.
"Her friends were then concerned for her safety, searched the area and found her," Vella said.
The suspects — all brothers — were arrested within minutes. Omeed Ahmadzai, 24; Nazeef Ahmadzai, 30; and Hewad Ahmadzai, 26 are facing a total of eight charges.
The suspects are scheduled to be back in court at the end of June.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-88-7474, or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.
