Thunder Bay truck driver charged in violent Barrie-area sexual assaults

By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com

A Thunder Bay truck driver is facing charges in the violent sexual assaults of a pair of men in Barrie, Ont.

CTV News is reporting Jordan Mannisto has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of indecent exposure.

He was arrested last June after Barrie police saw a man walking down a Barrie street with no pants on. Police later made a connection between that case and a pair of sexual assaults, which took place in September 2012.

Police are checking into whether any other assaults around the province fit the description of the two Barrie assaults, which involved men unknown to the attacker who say their lives were threatened.

Mannisto remains in custody and is expected back in court in February.
