Sex assault suspect in court by video Wednesday

The 25-year-old man arrested last week in connection with six local sex assaults will be back before a judge Wednesday afternoon, likely for just a brief video appearance.

It is possible lawyers could set a date for a bail hearing for Yousef Hussein but they will probably have to wait for the Crown to hand over the facts of the case and that could take weeks.

A team of eight investigators spent months trying to track down the person they believed responsible for at least three violent attacks.

DNA evidence has led officers to believe Hussein is responsible for six and they're still probing four similar cases.

Hussein is from Jordan and is living in Ottawa on an expired students' visa.
