A Mississauga man has been charged after the sexual assault of two McMaster University students.

The 26-year-old was arrested by Hamilton police who were investigating assaults that occurred between May 2012 and Feb. 2013, said Det. Sgt. Maggie Schoen.

The man has been charged with two counts of sexual assault

The two female victims and the accused knew each other, and all attended the university, she said.

"We believe there may be further information and the potential of more victims," Schoen said.

The accused was released Friday morning on a promise to appear in Hamilton court on April 23.
