  • Print

WINNIPEG -- A 44-year-old city man faces a number of charges after two women were forcibly confined and sexually assaulted on Thursday, police say.

The friends, aged 16 and 24, were visiting a man at his home in Charleswood. The man was an acquaintance of the 24-year-old who he had recently met through the Internet.

At some point in the evening, the man accused one of the females of stealing property from him, and prevented them from leaving. Over the next several hours, he threatened the victims and sexually assaulted them.

One of the victims was able to get help by contacting a friend through the suspects computer. Police had to force their way in to arrest the man. The victims were taken to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Oubay Ismail Chebib was charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of forcible confinement, and has been held at the Winnipeg Remand Centre. 

The investigation is continuing and more charges are expected.
