Police have charged a 28-year-old man in connection with a sexual assault at the Eaton Centre on Friday.

It’s alleged a 21-year-old woman was assaulted in the mall around 3:10 p.m. She screamed as the man smiled and walked away.

Police said they saw the man near Sherbourne and Gerrard streets around 10 p.m. Monday, and when they arrested him, he gave them a fake name.

Officers later discovered his real name is Omar Johnson, of no fixed address, and charged him with sexual assault and obstructing a peace officer.

He was scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Tuesday morning.

Police said there may be other victims.
