Officers said a male suspect produced a weapon, grabbed the victim and pulled her into a dark area where he sexually assaulted her.

Police said on Nov. 13, 2014, another female exited a bus at around 12:30 a.m. in the Yonge Street and Canyon Hill avenue area of Richmond Hill.

She was approached by a male suspect who had a knife, police said.

Officers said he demanded money from her, before pulling her into a field and sexually assaulting her.

“A lengthy and thorough investigation was conducted but the suspect remained unidentified,” police said in a news release. “In the fall of 2021, the Centre for Forensic Sciences notified investigators of a forensic link from an unrelated incident. Officers pursued this new information, which ultimately led to identifying the suspect.”

Officers said in March of 2022, Cho was charged with two counts each of kidnapping, and sexual assault with a weapon.

He was also charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm, and two counts each of uttering threats to cause death, disguise with intent, robbery and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
