Around 4:00 p.m. on July 8, 2023, officers were dispatched to a sexual assault. Information provided was that a youth in our community met an individual from Southern Ontario through a social media application and the individual had traveled to Greater Sudbury to meet the youth.

The individual picked-up the youth in a vehicle and then drove to an empty parking lot where the individual threatened and sexually assaulted the youth. The individual then headed back to Southern Ontario. Due to the sensitive nature of the incident and to protect the identity of the youth, no further information related to the youth will be provided.   

Based on the information provided an officer conducted a traffic stop on Regent Street on a vehicle matching the description. While the officer was gathering additional information, the driver drove off at a high speed towards Highway 69. It was determined that the driver of the vehicle was the person involved in the sexual assault and that the individual was supposed to be on house arrest in Southern Ontario for several sexual assaults over the past couple of years. While traveling back to Southern Ontario, the individual stopped and cut off an ankle monitor that was a condition of the release.

Around 5:00 p.m., officers from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in Nobel and took the driver into custody.

26-year-old, Amir Noori was transported back to Greater Sudbury and was charged with the following offences under the Criminal Code of Canada;

  • Sexual Assault with a Weapon
  • Sexual Interference
  • Forcible Confinement
  • Threats
  • Obstruct Police
  • Flight from Police
  • Breach of Recognizance x2

Amir Noori attended Weekend and Statutory Holiday (WASH) Court on July 9, 2023, to answer to the charges and has since been remanded into custody. A publication ban has been issued in relation to the incident, therefore no further details will be provided.

We would like to thank the OPP for its assistance with this matter.
