A superintendent of two apartment buildings in the city's Weston neighbourhood has been charged with multiple counts of sexual assault to a number of individuals including residents. 

The 34-year-old has been the manager of 2089 Lawrence Avenue West and 2099 Lawrence Avenue West since 2012. 

The suspect faces eight charges in total, including sexual interference and sexual assault to a person under the age of 16.
