Man charged with sexual assault at Montreal quarantine hotel; woman says she felt 'helpless'


A man has been charged with sexual assault after an incident last week at a Montreal COVID-19 quarantine hotel.

The woman alleging the assault told CTV News that the man came into her room, refused to leave, partially undressed and touched her against her will, only leaving when she threatened to scream.

She also said she felt “helpless” at the hotel, where she didn’t expect to end up, and where she was told she wasn’t allowed to disclose her location.

“They didn't tell you where they're taking you, which is unacceptable,” said the woman, who didn’t want her name published.

“They gave us a set of rules... can't post on social media, can't disclose location.”

The incident happened before hotel quarantines became mandatory this week.
