The man who terrorized the York University campus with a string of sexual assaults in 2000 has been freed and police are warning members of the public that he´s at high risk to re-offend.
Philip Foremsky, now 23, was 18 when he pleaded guilty to sexual assault with a weapon, two counts of sexual assault and two counts of armed robbery. Six women were assaulted over a two-month period between July and Sept. 2000 in the area of Keele St. and Steeles Ave W. in North York.
Foremsky was released Tuesday after serving his entire five-year sentence. Conditions of his release prohibit him from contacting his victims or visiting any parks, schools or university campuses.
The victims ranged in age from 22 to 48 and most were York University students.
At the time of the arrest, police credited two anonymous tipsters for helping break the case.
