Toronto police are asking for the public's help to identify a suspect in an alleged sexual assault late last week.

Officers responded to a call for a sexual assault in the York Street and Bremner Boulevard area on March 22 at 6:18 p.m, police said in a news release Tuesday.

The suspect entered a residential building to make a food delivery, the release says. The suspect then spoke with the victim as they waited for the elevator, and once inside, allegedly sexually assaulted the victim.

The suspect fled when the elevator opened.

Police say the suspect and the victim aren't known to each other.

The man is described as about 20 years old, five feet seven inches, with a slim build and a moustache.
