A 33-year-old Toronto man has been sentenced to eight and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to two violent sexual assaults almost a decade ago.
In a news release issued on Tuesday, York police said Jaehyun “David” Cho pleaded guilty on Monday to sexual assault with a weapon, sexual assault causing bodily harm and disguise with intent in connection with a 2013 assault in Mississauga and 2014 assault in Richmond Hill.
In September 2013, a 47-year-old female victim was exiting a transit bus in the area of South Service Road and Crestview Avenue in Mississauga when a male suspect produced a weapon, grabbed the victim and pulled her into a darkened area, where he sexually assaulted her, according to police.
The following year, in November, a 17-year-old female exited a transit bus at around 12:30 a.m. at Yonge Street and Canyon Hill Avenue in Richmond Hill and was approached by an unknown male armed with a knife who demanded money from her, then pulled her into a field and sexually assaulted her, police said.
