Yesterday, the Toronto Police Service laid criminal charges against a Toronto Transit Commission employee following a May 5, 2015 incident involving a girl that is alleged to have occurred on a TTC bus.
The allegations and charges – sexual assault, sexual interference and sexual exploitation – are incredibly serious and disturbing. The TTC is co-operating fully with police; the accused is not performing any TTC duties at this time.
Nothing is more important to the TTC than the safety and security of the customers in its care, particularly its most vulnerable. The TTC wants to assure the residents of Toronto, and all who rely on the TTC, that Toronto’s public transit system is one of the safest and most secure in the world, with its 14,000 employees committed to the highest standard of safety and customer care.
No further comment from the TTC will be forthcoming on this matter.
