A London man has been charged after a woman who met a date online was invited into a home, sexually assaulted, and prevented from leaving.
A 22-year old man was charged Friday.
Police said a woman met a man through a dating app. After chatting over various platforms, the pair agreed to meet for a first in-person date.
During that date, the woman was sexually assaulted and prevented from leaving the man’s home. She managed to flee and called for help. She sustained minor physical injuries, police said.
The accused has been released from custody and is scheduled to make his first court appearance in February.
