''Toronto police say they believe the same teenage boy is responsible for four recent sexual assaults on walking trails in the city’s east end.
Police issued a public safety alert Wednesday following the most recent incident, which occurred on July 23, along the East Don Valley Trail near Wynford Heights Crescent.
In this case, investigators said a 52-year-old woman was walking along the trail when a teenage boy riding a bicycle approached her from behind and sexually assaulted her. The suspect then rode away in an unknown direction.
A day earlier, on July 22, between 2 and 4 p.m., a 54-year-old woman was walking on the same trail, between Wynford Drive and Sloane Avenue, when she was attacked.
According to police, an unknown male began talking to a woman and asked her for water before allegedly sexually assaulting her.
The suspect then got back on his bike and cycled away, police said.
On July 8, around 5 p.m., another similar sexual assault happened on the Gatineau Hydro Corridor Trail, just east of Birchmount Road.
Investigators said in this case a woman was riding a bicycle on the trail between Birchmount and Kennedy roads when a teenage boy allegedly followed and stopped her. He then allegedly asked to show the woman the "11 fingers Tik Tok trick" before sexually assaulting her.''
