Members of the Provincial Strategy for the Protection of Children from Internet Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in Thunder Bay informed Toronto police in December 2022 of a luring case investigation of children and sexual assault involving a young person.
A male was identified and members of the Toronto Police Service ICE Section conducted a search of a residence located near the intersection of Weston and Finch arteries on February 7, 2023 in the northwest of the city.

Investigators say they seized several electronic devices containing evidence related to the luring and sexual assault in Thunder Bay, as well as a large amount of child sexual exploitation material, possibly we read in a press release from the Toronto Police Service.
