article imageToronto police seek 4 women in alleged sexual assault of man

By Arthur Weinreb     Apr 8, 2013 in Crime
Toronto - According to the 19-year-old man, after the four women offered him a ride home from a nightclub he was instead driven to a parking lot where he was sexually assaulted by all four before he was able to leave the vehicle.
Although the alleged assault occurred during the early morning hours of March 31, it was not reported to police until a week later. According to the man, he went to a nightclub alone near King Street W. and University Avenue in Toronto's entertainment district. At the club he met the four women.
When it was time to leave, the women offered to drive him home and he accepted. Instead of taking him home, they drove to a parking lot a few blocks away where all four women sexually assaulted him before allowing him to leave the vehicle.
According to police, the women fled in a silver Honda SUV.
Det. Const. Thomas Ueberholz, of the Toronto Police Sex Crimes Unit, said the police do get reports of men being sexually assaulted by women. He said, "Although the majority generally is females that are victims or complainants, it is not completely unusual for a male to be the victim of a sexual assault."
According to the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services, it is a myth that men do not suffer as much as women do when they are victims of sexual assault. They go through many of the same things including self-blame, shame, depression and anger. And having erections and ejaculating are physiological responses that do not indicate the man wanted or enjoyed the sex or even consented to it.
And Nicole Pietsch, with the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres, said, "Other men will say for example, 'Oh he's so lucky,' like that was actually a positive thing when it wasn't. I think that just feeds into the myth that sexual violence is something the victim wants."
The four women are all described as white, between 30 and 36 years of age, standing five feet four inches tall and weighing between 190 and 200 pounds. The driver of the SUV is described as being blond and speaking with an accent, possibly British. She had wings tattooed on the back of her neck. A second woman is described as having long dark hair with the bottom dyed red.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the Sex Crimes Unit at (416) 808-7474 or contact Crime Stoppers.
