A Mississauga man practicing as a self-described Sufi “religious healer” has been charged with sexually assaulting two women, the Mississauga News reports.

The alleged assaults occurred over an eight year period, according to Peel regional police.

The News reports that Syed Ahmed Khan, also known as Syed Ahmed Amir Amiruddin, was recently charged with several sexual offenses against the two women that date back to 2008. He faces two counts of sexual assault, two counts of extortion, two counts of non-consensual distribution of intimate images and sexual exploitation. 

The alleged victims were aged 15 and 20 in 2008.

Police said Khan has operated as a religious healer in Mississauga, Brampton and Burlington and worked primarily with followers and adherents of Sufism.

According to a recent QEW South Post article, the special victims unit fears there may be more victims.
