TTC driver charged with sexually assaulting girl, 15


City News


A longtime TTC driver known as “Bus Driver Al” is facing nine charges for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl he befriended on social media.

Police arrested Allan Hrynkiw, 39, on Thursday and charged him with three counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference and luring a child.

Police say the Oshawa man began communicating with the teen on Twitter in November 2014.

They met in person on July 2015 on a TTC streetcar and police say Hrynkiw later assaulted her on three separate occasions over the past four weeks.

“These (alleged assaults) occurred on a TTC streetcar,” Const. Caroline De Kloet said.

The TTC’s Brad Ross released a statement on Twitter, saying Hrynkiw has been pulled from work duties pending the results of the investigation.

“Given this very serious issue is now before the courts, the TTC will offer no further comment,” Ross said.

The TTC later confirmed that Hrynkiw has been employed with the transit commission for more than seven years. He’s been suspended with pay.

On his Twitter account, Hrynkiw says he commonly works the 506/306 Carlton routes. “Just call me Mr. Night Bus,” he says in his profile.



Bail for cop facing facing child pornography, fraud charges


Toronto Sun


A Peel Regional Police detective facing child pornography and fraud charges was released on bail Thursday.

Officers with Peel police’s internal affairs bureau arrested Craig Wattier, a 30-year veteran with the service, Wednesday morning.

He’s accused of accessing and possessing child pornography, breach of trust and two counts of fraud over $5,000.

He was the supervisor of the technological crime unit, which the force’s website says is responsible for the “seizure, collection, examination and preservation of electronic evidence.”

His wife has been designated his surety. She spoke quietly when she took the stand.

“She’s visibly shaken and concerned today, which is normal,” the justice of the peace said.

Wattier, 50, was released on $8,000 bail and must reside at his Brampton home and stay away from Internet devices, children and public places where children are known to congregate.

He held hands with his wife as he left the courthouse. He didn’t speak with reporters before leaving in a waiting SUV.

There’s a publication ban on the evidence presented at the hearing.

As required by the provincial Police Services Act, Wattier has been suspended with pay.

“I take these allegations very seriously,” Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans said in a statement late Wednesday. “As a police service there will be difficult days ahead but these allegations should not detract from the great work that is done on a daily basis by the other members of this police service.”

Paul Black, president of the Peel Regional Police Association, issued a statement Thursday afternoon saying the group is “very concerned” about the charges.

“The association only became aware of these allegations when our member was charged,” Black said. “We take these allegations seriously, however at this stage remind everyone that these are only allegations which have not been proven in a court of law.”

Wattier has also worked in the special victims, intelligence, criminal investigations, audit and major collision units, according to an archived conference program.

He’s scheduled to return to court Sept. 14th.
