Ottawa police make two arrests, seek three more suspects in alleged sex assault in park


Ottawa police say they’ve arrested two people and are searching for three more suspects in an alleged robbery and sexual assault.

Police say a man in his late 20s was walking in Confederation Park last Tuesday when he was surrounded by a group of people.

They allege he was sexually assaulted before the group made off with his backpack.

Two men, ages 24 and 27, are facing multiple charges including one count each of robbery and assault with a weapon.

Police say they’re looking for two women and one man in connection with the case.

Anyone with information is being asked to come forward.
