A taxi driver from Muskoka has been charged after the alleged sexual assault of a passenger.

OPP say they received a report last month that a sexual assault had occurred in a taxi near a commercial area in Gravenhurst in late July.

According to police, a 57-year old man from Gravenhurst was arrested and charged with sexual assault on August 10.

Anyone who has any information about this, or a similar incident, is asked to call Bracebridge OPP at 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

"There is no statute of limitations on sexual offences and a report can be made to police at any time, regardless of how much time has passed. You can report a sexual assault by calling the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or 9-1-1 in an emergency.
