A man who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman at a Yorkgate Mall gym has surrendered to police.

Andrew Gordon, 37, turned himself in on Sunday, Toronto police said. He has been charged with sexual assault.

Police said they were called to the Planet Fitness Gym at 1 York Gate Blvd. on March 13.

A 26-year-old woman says she was walking in the front lobby of the gym when the suspect stepped in front of her and blocked her path. He then allegedly grabbed her in a bear hug and sexually assaulted her.

She broke free and ran away, police said, while the man left the building.
