A female parking enforcement officer has accused three Toronto police officers of gang sexually assaulting her while she was too intoxicated to give her consent in a downtown hotel room in January of 2015, according to a police document obtained by CBC News. The three officers, Josh Cabero, Sameer Kara and Leslie Nyznik, all from 51 Division, were arrested and charged with sexual assault and gang sexual assault on Feb. 19, 2015. They have been suspended with pay. A preliminary hearing is to be held next month. Their lawyers have said they will plead not guilty. Details of the sexual assault, which is alleged to have taken place on the night of January 16, 2015, are contained in a document known as an information to obtain (ITO). In it, investigators lay out the evidence they have gathered as part of a request for a warrant authorizing the taking of bodily substances for forensic DNA analysis. None of the allegations in the document has been proven in court.
