    An investigation into a series of inappropriate sexual touching of women has led to the arrest of a suspect of 38 years, on Wednesday night, at Delson, Montérégie.

    At the beginning of the month, the Régie intermunicipale de police Roussillon had requested the assistance of the public to obtain information regarding inappropriate sexual touching done on June 7 by a person on board a municipal bus from Montreal and Delson.

    The wanted man had subtly put her hand near the private parts of her nearby seat as she spoke on the phone.

    Following the media coverage of the case, another alleged victim was shown to the police.

    Therefore, the investigation was transferred to the investigators of the crime squad in the series of the Sûreté du Québec.

    It’s answering a call on new sexual touching in a municipal bus, Wednesday, that the police were able to pin the alleged perpetrator of this series of crimes.

    Giovanni Akplogan, Saint-Constant, has been pinned to his descent from the bus, at the park and ride the boulevard Georges-Gagné, Delson.

    According to the authorities, Akplogan could be the author of several other similar crimes, committed between the months of January and July.

    The suspect has appeared in court Thursday in Longueuil, quebec, under the charges of sexual assault.
