London man accused of assaulting a woman and harassing others to stay in jail, for now | CBC News

A 22-year-old man accused of harassing multiple women and assaulting one person over the weekend will remain in jail, at least for now. 

Saranjeet (Sharanjeet) Singh made a brief court appearance on his latest charge on Tuesday morning, via video link from the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre. He said his name and date of birth and the name of his lawyer, Carolyn Conron. 

Conron asked for a publication ban to be put on the latest charges and told the court she was still waiting for disclosure, which is evidence collected by police and used by Crown prosecutors. Singh will be back in court Nov. 18. 

Singh was already facing a slew of criminal harassment charges involving young women when he was arrested after a woman was assaulted on Saturday morning. 

Police said a 28-year-old woman was in the area of Adelaide Street and Commissioners Road at about 10 a.m. Saturday when a man who had been watching her for a period of time ran across the road and grabbed her. 

The woman was able to get away and ran to a nearby business, where she called police. The man stayed outside of the business and continued to watch the woman until police arrived and arrested him, officers said. 

Singh was charged with assault, criminal harassment by threatening conduct and failure to comply with a release order.

Police warned the public

London police issued a public warning about Singh when he was released from jail on Nov. 5. 

Singh was in custody after being arrested on Oct. 23 for allegedly following a 21-year-old woman walking to a residence on Patricia Street, near Huron and Richmond Streets.

Police say the accused parked his car in a driveway and knocked on the door repeatedly before the woman called police and Singh was arrested.

There were five previous incidents before Singh’s arrest, reported between Oct. 16 and 18. Five different women were followed on three separate occasions. The 22-year-old is facing seven counts of harassment related to following, and one count of harassment in connection to the previous incidents, police said. There were no reported physical injuries in any of the cases.
