Police say it is not clear whether the woman was treated for serious injuries

A Toronto doctor has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged sexual assault, a police spokeswoman has said.

Thaddeus Pham, 41, was charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm and committing an indignity to a human body.

Police said in a statement that the alleged assault took place between 2am and 7am on Sunday.

“It is currently unknown whether the victim was injured during the assault,” they said.

A person familiar with the case told the New York Times that Pham, who works as a family physician at Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care, was arrested at a Boston airport as he was about to board a flight to his home in Toronto.

In a statement, the centre said it was aware of the arrest and said that it fully supports the police investigation and that its staff’s behaviour was consistent with the professional standards of the profession.

Police said that they are currently talking to as many witnesses as possible.
