A health care practitioner from Mississauga is facing a sexual assault charge.
Peel police say that on Feb. 3, 2021, a 20-year-old man attended the home-based clinic of a homoeopathic health practitioner. Police allege that the victim was sexually assaulted by the practitioner during his session and subsequently contacted police to report the incident.
Police say that on Feb. 15, investigators charged Aziz Qureshi, a 57-year-old Mississauga man, with one count of sexual assault. The accused was released and will appear in court at a later date.
Investigators believe there may be additional victims and are appealing to anyone who may recognize or may have had a similar encounter with the accused to contact investigators.
