In November 2021, police arrested Michel Riad and Mostafa Ezzat – both 19 – after the victim claimed he was sexually assaulted by the two men at an Oakville residence in September.

Both have been charged with sexual assault and gang assault, with Ezzat also facing child pornography charges for allegedly taking and sharing photos of the assault on social media.

Last week, police re-arrested the two men after further investigation.

Riad now faces new charges of making and possessing child pornography, while Ezzat is now also charged with uttering threats, forcible confinement, assault, choking and two other counts of sexual assault.

Both are being held pending a bail hearing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police or Crime Stoppers.
