Toronto police say a 32-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted in her Beaches neighbourhood home early Sunday.

Police said a man got into the woman’s home in the Woodbine Avenue and Kingston Road area at around 3 a.m. by using a ladder to get into a bedroom on the second floor.

Investigators released security images of a suspect late Sunday in an effort to identify the suspect.

Katie Besler, a 30-year neighbourhood resident, is one of several neighbourhood residents who said they were worried after Sunday’s incident.

“That’s pretty scary because that’s not the usual kind of thing that happen around here,” she said.

In an update released Monday evening, police said the accused surrendered to officers at 55 Division earlier in the day.

Toronto resident Cayle Dupuis was charged with sexual assault, criminal harassment, break and enter with intent, prowling at night and possession of a break-in instrument.

Dupuis appeared in court Tuesday wearing a grey hoodie and an orange prison jumpsuit.  The case has been put over until Thursday.

Meanwhile, anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-7474 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
