The state broadcaster has done it again. Their story about a sexual assault in Toronto hasn't been updated despite the fact a suspect has been charged.
According to Global News, Toronto police have charged a 31-year-old man accused of forcing a teen girl into a car and sexually assaulting her.
The attack happened Wednesday in the York Mills Road and Leslie Street area. The report says the girl was walking when a man in a vehicle approached her and offered a ride. When she refused, the man got out of his car and forced her in. It is alleged the man sexually assaulted her.

Luckily, the teen managed to escape and report the incident to the police and security images of the man's car were released in an effort to help find the man.
As it turns out, 31-year-old Muhammad Shahid was charged.
But you wouldn't know that if you read the CBC article, which hasn't been updated. The article keeps the original police report description “The man is described as white, in his 20s, 5 foot 7, with dirty blonde hair. He was wearing a multi-coloured, buttoned-up plaid shirt and blue jeans.”
No mention of Muhammad Shahid. And there's no additional story serving as an update. Maybe the CBC would have done some additional reporting if the suspect had been named “Joe Smith”.
