An Oakville man is facing charges after a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted during acupuncture treatment at his Mississauga clinic. 

Investigators with the Peel Regional Police Special Victims Unit say the 37-year-old woman was reportedly assaulted during a September visit to the Hanbit Alternative Health Centre, located on Glen Erin Dr. just north of Dundas St. W. in the city’s west end.  

Jong Chul Kim, 51, of Oakville, is charged with one count of sexual assault. 

He appeared in Brampton court on Sept. 29. 

Police say Kim is also known to practice acupuncture at his secondary location, the Hanbit Alternative Medicine (Health) Clinic in Oakville. That clinic, at 2010 Winston Park Dr. just west of the Mississauga/Oakville border, is located only a couple of blocks away from the Glen Erin Dr. facility.

Police say they’re continuing their investigation, and anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 905-453-2121, ext. 3460, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
