Toronto hairdresser charged with sexual assault on dozens of minors after missing probation

A Toronto hairdresser faces additional sexual abuse charges after the authorities discovered a “significant” number of children in his care. On Thursday morning, Mustafa Ururyar was arrested and charged with sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, sexual exploitation and two counts of making child pornography.

Investigators learned earlier this month that Ururyar, 35, was giving free haircuts to minors at his Oakville salon and appeared on a probation warrant after having been convicted of child pornography. Police believe they have been able to identify more than 40 of Ururyar’s victims, all of whom were under 16 years old. Ururyar has since been released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court on April 16.

In a press conference on Thursday, Toronto Police Det. Sgt. Victor Kwong said, “After being charged, more victims came forward and I’m happy to say they were able to identify more victims, and we’ve now got more victims, right now, that have come forward to give us information.” (Toronto police spokesperson Meaghan Gray later confirmed that two additional alleged victims had been identified, according to ABC News.) “It is important for parents to know that, no matter who you are and no matter what kind of haircut you’re getting, if you come forward and we do find out that you’ve been victimized by this offender, the more information we get from you, the better we are going to be able to put him behind bars.”
