INNISFIL – South Simcoe Police Service officers have charged a Brampton man after two teenage girls were sexually assaulted while swimming at an Innisfil beach.  

On Saturday, June 20, 2020, around 5:30 p.m., police responded to the beach at the end of Mapleview Drive for a report of a sex offence.

Citizens on scene called the police while the suspect fled in a vehicle. The victims did not suffer physical injuries. A sexual assault includes any non-consensual contact of a sexual nature.

As a result of investigation, 28-year-old Phillip Mitchell of Brampton was charged with two counts of Sexual Assault and two counts of Sexual Interference.

He surrendered to police on Sunday, June 28, 2020 and was released with a future court date.

The victims in this incident did the right thing by immediately alerting nearby adults about what happened. Thank you to the witnesses who helped us with this investigation.

Please take this opportunity to talk to your children about personal safety. Street-proofing and crime prevention messages should be taught to children from a young age.  

South Simcoe Police Service encourages victims to report incidents of sexual assault, including historical offences. There is no statute of limitations for sexual offences and offenders can be prosecuted well after the date of the offence.
