A 36-year-old male passenger was arrested after he committed an indecent act and inappropriately touched a female passenger on a GO Transit bus.
On Saturday, February 20, 2016, at approximately 4:10 p.m., officers from Central West Division responded to the Oshawa GO Station after special constables had arrested a male passenger of a GO Transit bus. An 18-year-old female reported that the male suspect, who sat near her on the bus, engaged her in conversation while travelling from Peterborough and touched her inappropriately while rubbing his groin. The male also produced a syringe and injected himself with a liquid while using explicit sexual language with the female.
GO Transit special constables arrested the male as the bus arrived at the Oshawa GO Station and held him for DRPS officers, who then continued the arrest. The victim was not physically injured during the incident.
Delroy APPLE, age 36, of Queen Street in Toronto, is charged with: Sexual Assault; Indecent Act and Fail to Comply with Probation Order. He was held for a bail hearing.
