Police say a 37-year-old man is facing additional charges in an ongoing investigation into sexual assaults and frauds in Ottawa.

They say the Ottawa man was charged last week with 11 counts, including sexual assault, fraud under $5,000, credit card theft and obtaining property by crime.

Investigators say 13 new charges were laid on Monday, including sexual assault causing bodily harm, uttering a forged document, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.

Police have linked the arrest to warnings about a false Uber driver who was allegedly targeting women who appear to be intoxicated and have just left bars or restaurants late at night, particularly in the ByWard Market area.
