A 25-year-old Toronto doctor was arrested on Wednesday and charged with sexual assault after he was accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting four women at a house party in 2015, CTV News Toronto reported.
Ayub Qureshi’s arrest came after an alleged victim reported the incident to police and police uncovered evidence that linked him to the case, according to CTV News Toronto. He allegedly sexually assaulted four women at a house party in 2015.
Both the first alleged victim and one of the alleged assault victims identified Qureshi by his name, giving investigators his age, as well as a security badge issued to him by the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in order to search his personal property, according to CTV News Toronto.
One of the women alleged she was abused on multiple occasions on Aug. 11, 2015. She told the Globe and Mail that Qureshi told her to remove her clothes, then digitally penetrated her on the three occasions.
Another woman told police she met Qureshi at a house party when she was in her early 20s, and he told her he was a doctor, CTV News Toronto reported. According to the arrest warrant, he asked to touch her breast and knee and told her not to scream. The woman reported she was repeatedly sexually assaulted over a four-hour period. Qureshi had been with the medical faculty of Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., at the time.
Qureshi was arrested on a charge of four counts of sexual assault, all of which are in relation to incidents in 2015, CTV News Toronto reported.
According to CTV News Toronto, Qureshi is the youngest physician to ever be charged with sexual assault in Ontario. He posted bail on Wednesday and was due to appear in court on Thursday.
