York students feeling 'unsafe'

Police make arrest in campus sexual assault

Over the weekend, Toronto police arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with an alleged sexual assault that took place recently at York University. The 20-year-old victim was assaulted twice in the Seneca College building at 4:00pm on Thursday, and police say the incident was captured by surveillance cameras. In response to the attack, the York Federation of Students (YFS) says the administration has not done enough to address security concerns both on and off campus, and that students are feeling “unsafe.” The York community is still reeling from the murder of student Qian Liu at her home located in the York Village. “The fact that the university is still dragging its feet on implementing any tangible solutions to addressing these issues of safety in the community is most troubling,” YFS president Siva Vimalachandran told the Globe and Mail.
