During the winter of 2020-2021, the three complainants who withdrew filed a complaint with the police in light of allegations that first surfaced against Peter Nygard in the United States. p>
The Crown demonstrated in this trial that Peter Nygard always used the same modus operandi to lure his alleged victims to his former Toronto workshop by using pretexts .
According to the judge's decision, the first of the three women said she was assaulted in the workshop suite during a Halloween party in 1987.

The woman told police she doesn't remember if she was invited but was disoriented when she found herself in the bedroom.
She claims that she woke up the next day and that Peter Nygard told her forbidden to leave. She believes he even locked the door to the room.
She alleges that she was then raped vaginally and anally before the accused let her go. She described Peter Nygard as a wild beast.
The second plaintiff also does not know Peter Nygard, but she claims she got a job interview with the businessman in late 2004 or early 2005.
She told police she was offered a drink when she arrived, said she felt nauseous and asked to go to the toilet. When she returned, she noticed that Peter Nygard was naked in front of her.
