An arrest has been made in  a cold case dating back to 1991. Two sisters, nine and five years old at the time, were playing in their apartment lobby in the Warden and Danforth Road area. A man persuaded the girls to get into his car, dropped off the younger one at Victoria Park and assaulted the nine-year-old before leaving her on Danforth Road. The case was unsolved for years, but with DNA evidence collected at the time, investigators have now identified a suspect.
