TORONTO – The Toronto Transit Commission says the allegations against a bus driver accused of sexually assaulting a teenage passenger are incredibly serious and disturbing.
The TTC says it is co-operating fully with the investigation that led police to arrest the 50-year-old driver.
It says the driver is not performing any TTC duties at this time.
Police say it happened on Tuesday after the driver stopped the bus in a commercial area with only a 16-year-old girl on board.
They allege he let her sit in the driver’s seat and sexually assaulted her.
Cleveland Phillips is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and sexual exploitation.
