An individual from Toronto is facing charges after arriving in Kingston via bus and committing sexual assault and minor theft.

According to a release from Kingston Police, the accused male arrived in town on Thursday, May 2, 2024, via bus near Division Street and Highway 401 and immediately committed a minor theft at a nearby gas station. He reportedly used a taxi to get to the area of two local shelters.

“Once there, the accused approached an adult female in the area of Montreal Street and Railway Street, and then sexually assaulted her,” the Kingston Police Sexual Assault Unit detailed. 

“The accused then re-entered the same taxi, eventually being dropped off at the bus station on John Counter Boulevard, where he refused to pay for the fare before returning to the Greater Toronto Area.”

After what police called a “detailed investigation,” Ossa Fisher, a 46-year-old individual from the Greater Toronto Area, was “properly identified and arrested,” police said. He was subsequently transported back to Kingston for a bail hearing, which occurred on Thursday, Jun. 6, 2024.

“On the date of the offence, May 2, 2024, the accused was serving four separate probation orders and before the courts for two other separate sets of criminal charges for which he was on a release order from the courts,” police said

From these incidents in Kingston, Fisher is now also facing charges of sexual assault, theft under $5,000, obtaining transportation by fraud, and four counts of breach of probation.
