A TTC driver has been accused of sexually assaulting a passenger in an employees only room.

Police say officers started an investigation on June 1 after it was alleged that a 54-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in a TTC employee area.

In a release, police say the woman started a conversation with the driver on a bus who accompanied her to the Kipling Station where she bought a Metro Pass.

They continued their talk and walked to a TTC employees-only room at the end of a bus platform for a cigarette.

Once in the room, police say, the accused sexually assaulted the woman.

"It is further alleged that the accused contacted the woman after the assault," police note.

A 61-year-old Toronto man is charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault and criminal harassment. He was to appear in court today.
