Toronto school safety monitor charged in teen's sexual assault

A school safety monitor has been charged after a teen reported being sexually assaulted at a Toronto high school.

Police said the assault occurred at Weston Collegiate Institute, a high school in the area of Jane Street and Lawrence Avenue, on Friday, Jan. 8.

A man led a 17-year-old girl to a remote area of the school and sexually assaulted her, police said in a statement Tuesday.

As a result of an investigation, 42-year-old Clinton Russell was arrested. Russell has been charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

Police said the suspect is employed as a school-based safety monitor at Weston. Safety monitors spend their shifts walking through the school building and grounds, monitoring the area for intruders or risky activities.

Officers believe there may be more victims.  (more...)
