ONTARIO’S Peel Regional Police investigators from the Special Victims Unit have arrested a man in relation to a sexual assault investigation from 2014.
On August 13, 2014, just before 8 p.m., a woman was sexually assaulted in her vehicle in a plaza in the area of Chinguacousy Road and Queen Street West in Brampton. During this incident, the victim was in the presence of her two young children who were seated in the car during the attack. The victim did not sustain any physical injuries. Following the incident, the unknown suspect fled the area and an investigation commenced.
In August 2020, DNA analysis positively identified the suspect as Ravinder Sidhu, a 33-year-old man of no fixed address. As a result of this match, a Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued and attempts to locate Sidhu commenced.
On Thursday, October 22, Sidhu was located in Calgary and arrested. Investigators from the Special Victims Unit flew out to Calgary and brought Sidhu back to answer to charges of assault and sexual assault. He attended the Ontario Court of Justice on October 27 for a bail hearing.
