A 28 year-old man from Toronto has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly had unprotected sex with a woman without disclosing his HIV status.
In what has become an unnervingly commonplace consequence of an arrest for HIV exposure in Canada, Toronto police have provided the man's name and photo to local media because "they are worried there may be more victims". It also conviently serves as a 'fishing expedition' for more complainants without the police having to do too much.
Police are releasing [the man]'s photo and urging anyone who has had sexual contact with him to seek medical advice and contact police.According to the report in the Toronto Star, the man, who was diagnosed in 2005, corresponded with the complainant online for four years before they met for what appears to be a one-night stand.
Although the report does not explain the other charges, he is also charged with "two counts of failing to comply with probation and one count of common nuisance."
