Mostafa Ezzat (19) of Oakville (below) has been charged with:

Both Riad and Ezzat have been held in custody pending a bail hearing in Milton.

The police investigation has also determined there may be additional victims. Anyone with further information is asked to contact the Child Abuse Sexual Assault (CASA) Unit at 905-465-8970.

Under the Criminal Code, “child pornography” offences involve a victim who is under the age of 18.

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.

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.
