York University part time instructor charged with two counts of sex assault


TORONTO  A Toronto university says that one of its part-time faculty members has been arrested in connection with alleged sexual assaults that took place on the local transit system.

York University issued a statement confirming the arrest of Nicolae Stefan Pop, which was also announced by Toronto Police on Friday.

Toronto police say they started their investigation last month after a social media post was made about the incidents that allegedly took place on subway cars last month.

Investigators say two women and a witness came forward after seeing the post.

The 51-year-old is now facing two charges of sexual assault.

York says Pop hasn’t taught at the school since Jan. 20 but declined further comment on the case.
