According to investigators, a man went to a home in the area of Wellington and Simcoe streets shortly after midnight after communicating with a woman through an online advertisement.

It’s alleged the suspect tied up the victim, and then tasered, assaulted and robbed her before fleeing in a red 2019 Toyota RAV4 with licence plate CHDY928. The woman suffered minor injuries in the incident and did not seek medical attention, police said.
