Toronto police are looking for a suspect after a number of people in the Trinity Bellwoods Area reported being tricked into watching porn videos by a man asking for directions.
On July 27, at around 2:10 a.m., officers responded to a call for an indecent act near Queen Street and Dovercourt Road.
Police said a 30-year-old woman was walking in the area and was approached by a man in a car asking for directions.
She agreed to show him the location on his phone and when he gave her his phone a pornographic video was playing, police said.
He then committed “an indecent act” and drove away, police said.
Later that night, at around 2:30 a.m., police responded to a second call for an indecent act near King and Sudbury streets.
Police said a 30-year-old woman was also approached by a man in a car asking for directions and was shown a pornographic video on his phone when she agreed to help.
The suspect then committed an indecent act and drove away, police said.
Several days later on Aug. 5., officers responded to a call for indecent exposure at around 2 a.m., near Dundas and Bathurst streets.
A 24-year-old woman was walking in the area when she was approached by a man in a car asking for directions.
The man passed her his phone which had a pornographic video playing on it and then he committed an indecent act and drove away, police said.
It’s believed the same man is responsible for all three incidents, police said.
The suspect is described as brown, 30-35 years old, standing at five-foot-five, and weighing 150 pounds with a slim build. He has dark hair, brown eyes and a stubble beard.
In the first two incidents, police said the man was driving an older model black Honda Civic.
The suspect was reportedly driving a white SUV in the last incident.
Police said patrols in the area have been put on alert about the incidents.
Anyone with information is being asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
