A woman who tried to rent her apartment was robbed and raped, police in Canada said.

Now, the Toronto Police Service is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.

The incident unfolded on Sunday approximately 8:00 p.m. The suspect arrived at the 43-year-old woman’s apartment building in the Birchmount Road and Finch Avenue East area.

The man was invited into the apartment by the woman, because he claimed to be interested in subletting the unit. While inside the apartment, the man tied up the woman and sexually assaulted her.

The man then pulled out a gun, pointed it at the woman and robbed her of her personal items. The man fled several hours later.

The man is described as being of Asian descent, 5 foot 9 inches tall with a medium build.

He was wearing a dark pea coat, dark-blue toque, dark-colored scarf, blue jeans, light-brown/tan shoes or boots, and a black or grey satchel-style knapsack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
