Barrie Police communications coordinator Peter Leon did not know why Tony Gordon was arrested other than the investigation is being handled by Sioux Lookout OPP.
Last month, police issued an advisory that they believed Gordon was living in Barrie after being released from custody, and that his previous convictions range from break and enter, trespassing/prowl at night to sexual assault, and assault by choking, suffocation or strangulation.
