Man charged in Sandy Hill sexual assault

A 27-year-old Ottawa man has been charged with sexual assault following an incident in Sandy Hill early Friday morning.

Around 2 a.m., a woman walking on Wilbrod Street near Chapel Street was approached from behind and sexually assaulted.

The victim screamed for help, which drew attention to her attacker; two men in a vehicle stopped, chased the suspect and held him until police arrived.

John Nathan Nicol was scheduled to appear in court Friday.
