A Brampton man employed as a bus driver with Burlington Transit was arrested and charged with sexual assault on Friday.

The Halton Regional Police Service believe there might be other victims of the accused and are asking anyone who has information to contact its Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 8970.

“Sexual assault is any touching of another person without their consent where the touching is of a sexual nature, or where the sexual integrity of the victim is violated,” HRPS said in a media release. “A sexual assault can range from unwanted touching to sexual assault involving penetration.

“There is no statute of limitation when it comes to reporting a sexual assault. This means that no matter how long ago the sexual assault happened, you can still report it to police for investigation.”

Renil Amin, 33, of Brampton, is facing two counts of sexual assault and two counts of committing an indecent act. The victim was known to the accused, and the HRPS Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Unit believes the assaults began in 2019 and continued until recently.

The Halton police also has a victim services unit that offers supports to victims and survivors of violence and/or sexual assault. It is reachable at 905-825-4777 for support.

Tips in support of this or any Halton police investigation may also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at haltoncrimestoppers.ca.
