Before that, police allege a 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on Oct. 9, 2018, in a home in the Sentinel Road and Cook Road area, in the Village at York University.
Police further allege that in the summer of 2018, on Aug. 8, a 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at a residence in the Four Winds Drive and Keele Street area.
On Thursday, Feb. 28, police say they arrested 21-year-old Lamar Anthony Howe of Toronto in connection to all three incidents.
He faces several charges including two counts of sexual assault, one count of assault with a weapon and 12 counts of failing to comply to a probation order.
Howe appeared in court on Friday, police said.
