Toronto man arrested for alleged sexual assault at North York church

A Toronto man has been arrested and charged with sexual assault and forcible confinement in connection with incidents at a North York church dating back to 2013.

Matthew James Liguori, 33, was arrested in Victoria on Friday, after police began investigating three victims with incidents occurring at an east Toronto church on Ivey Avenue, just north of an airport entrance.

His arrest was the result of a joint investigation by the Divisional Public Corruption Unit and Service Unit Holdups, a specialized squad that investigates sex crimes.

Liguori is charged with three counts of sexual assault, forcible confinement, and assault. He is to appear in court on Feb. 28 in Milton, Ont.

The victims are male and have been identified, police said.

Investigators believe there may be other victims. Anyone with information can contact investigators at 416-808-7400, or through the OPP tip line at 1-800-782-7463.

Police are cautioning victims not to reveal any details of the case to media, and instead contact investigators.
