Toronto police have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with a string of sexual assaults in north Toronto.

Toronto police have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with a string of sexual assaults in the Yonge Street and Finch Avenue area.

Police allege the man drove around the area following women in the late evening between May and the middle of this month.

It's alleged he would get out of his car and follow the women on foot before pushing them to the ground, sexually assaulting them and in some cases stealing their purse.

Nhan Huu Nyguyen is charged with eight counts of sexual assault and two counts of robbery.

He appeared in court Friday morning.

Police say there may have been more incidents and are asking any witnesses to come forward.
