TORONTO: Paedophile Ryan Belbin convicted of abducting, assaulting 4-year-old Jewish girl

Man convicted of abducting, assaulting 4-year-old girl


Ryan Belbin


TORONTO - A man who snuck into an unlocked home, abducted a four-year-old girl from her bed and sexually assaulted her on Boxing Day 2011, was found guilty of all charges Thursday.

Ryan Belbin — who had no prior criminal convictions — snatched the sleeping girl at 3 a.m., stripped her naked and was “hunkering over” the child in a North York backyard when the panicked victim’s father discovered the horrifying sight, Justice Nola Garton said in a written judgment.

Belbin, 30, will be sentenced for breaking and entering, abduction of a minor, sexual assault and sexual interference on Nov. 27.

Garton found that the alternative suspects suggested by defence lawyer Jennifer Penman — the victim’s father and another neighbour — weren’t the culprits and Crown attorney Sheila Cressman proved Belbin was the offender.


The judge found that Belbin stopped his attack when the victim’s father screamed. Belbin then sprinted eastbound in the Bathurst-Wilson area.

The hysterical father cradled his child in his arms and returned to his parents’ home — where the family was visiting from Connecticut.

Belbin’s DNA was found on the victim’s pyjamas but it couldn’t be determined what “particular bodily fluid was the source,” said Garton.

Penman argued that Belbin’s DNA — either from spit or urine on the ground — could have been innocently transferred on to the clothing during the assault.

Belbin, who lived in close proximity to the victim’s relatives, delivered newspapers in the area until two weeks before the incident.

A 4-year-old girl abducted from a north Toronto home and sexually assaulted was released from hospital on Tuesday.

The girl, who was visiting with family from Connecticut, was abducted early Monday morning from her grandparents’ home on Charleswood Dr., near Bathurst St. and Wilson Ave. While police released few details on the kidnapping or assault, a woman who identified herself as the girl’s grandmother said the ordeal “had a happy ending,” referring to her granddaughter’s discharge from hospital.

“By the grace of God,” she said, standing inside her doorway Tuesday morning.

As a cold rain drizzled outside, neighbours visited the house, which belongs to an orthodox Jewish family.

Police said a man grabbed the girl between 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Monday. Family discovered the girl a short distance from the house “within minutes of the abduction and saw a man fleeing the scene,” police said.

Police did not confirm a sexual assault occurred until Monday evening.

The suspect is described as a white man, 19 or 20 years old, with an average build, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket or sweatshirt, dark sweatpants or jeans and striped, bluish toque.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Lynn Ratushny said she questioned the sincerity of Mohamed Jama Yusuf’s last-minute apology before sentencing him for “violently and callously” delivering the deadly punch that would take the life of 51-year-old Sean Murphy. Continue reading

OTTAWA – Actions speak louder than an 11th-hour apology, a prosecutor argued Tuesday as she sought 12 years for the “brutal, senseless and completely unprovoked” attack that left 51-year-old Sean Murphy dead.

Mohamed Jama Yusuf, 23, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, admitting he punched Murphy, a complete stranger, as he rode his bike towards Yusuf outside a Mac’s Milk store just after midnight on Aug. 26, 2008.

He then stomped and kicked the older, slighter man on the ground. Continue reading

MONTREAL- A street gang member who was ordered out of the country more than a year ago has been arrested again as he while he still has three major criminal cases pending.
In March 2011, the Federal Court of Canada confirmed a previous decision, by the Immigration and Refugee Board, ordering that Dikila MBosso, 21, be deported to Democratic Republic of Congo, after the court determined he was a member of a street gang tied to the Bo-Gars and was a dangerous criminal, based on his criminal record as a youth. Removing MBosso to the African nation where he was born has proven difficult as it is a country that Canada’s Foreign Affairs department advises against visiting. Continue reading
