In Nov. 2021, police arrested Michel Riad and Mostafa Ezzat — both 19 years old — after the victim claimed they were sexually assaulted by both males at an Oakville residence in September.

Both faced sexual assault and gang sexual assault charges, with Ezzat also facing child pornography charges for allegedly taking and sharing photos of the assault over social media.

Last week, police again arrested both men after further investigation.

Riad now faces new charges of making and possessing child pornography, while Ezzat is now also accused of uttering threats, forcible confinement, assault, choking and two more counts of sexual assault.

Both are being held in custody pending a bail hearing.

Anybody with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
