Police investigating alleged ‘criminal harassment’ against 2 teen girls at TTC station – Toronto

Police are investigating after two teen girls were allegedly criminally harassed at a Toronto transit station earlier this week.

Toronto police said in a news release that at around 8 a.m. on Monday, a man was in the bus area of Wilson Station, located at Allen Road and Wilson Avenue.

The man approached two teen girls who were waiting for a bus and made “unwanted and inappropriate comments” to them, police said.

The girls then boarded a TTC bus and the man allegedly followed them. He continued to follow them on the bus as they tried to move away from him, police said.
