A 37-year-old man has been charged in connection with a sexual assault inside a Niagara Falls attraction on Monday that sent a woman to hospital.

The Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) says the victim was exiting a bathroom at the Skylon Tower on Robinson Street when she was attacked from behind just before 8 p.m. on Dec. 26.

“The victim sustained minor physical injuries and was assessed at the scene by paramedics before being transported to a local hospital for treatment,” an NRPS spokesperson said in a release.

“She has since been released from hospital and continues to recover at home.”

The accused, from Niagara Falls, was arrested Thursday at a residence in the area of Morrison Street and Homewood Avenue.
