A 26-year-old Carleton student has been banned from all post-secondary campuses after being charged with three counts of sexual assault.

Police arrested Mohamed Daoud after a Carleton University employee reported on Sept. 4 that she had been inappropriately touched by a man in an elevator. Carleton security held the man until police arrived.

Daoud appeared in court the following day. He was released on bail under strict conditions, which includes a ban from entering any post-secondary school campus.

“The ban is effective immediately,” the university said in a press release. “Carleton University takes the safety of its students, faculty and staff very seriously.”

Further investigation identified two other workers at the university who allege separate incidents involving Daoud. One of the alleged assaults also occurred on Sept. 4, while the other occurred in March. All three are said to have taken place in elevators on campus.

“We think there may be more,” Constable Marc Soucy of the Ottawa Police Service told CTV News.

Dauod’s next court appearance is Sept. 23.

Police are asking anyone with further information to contact the sexual assault and child abuse unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5944, or to contact Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 or toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.
