The alleged sexual assault occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. in the lobby of an apartment building located at 2020 Sheppard Avenue in Toronto.

- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
