A London man who is accused of criminally harassing several women and was the subject of a public safety warning from police has been arrested again.

Saranjeet Singh, 22, was arrested Saturday after a woman reported to police that she had been assaulted in the area of Adelaide Street and Commissioners Road. According to police, the woman said a man who had been watching her for a period of time, ran across the road and grabbed her. She was able to escape and run to a nearby business to call police.

Police say Singh is now charged with assault, criminal harassment by threatening conduct, and failing to comply with a release order.

Singh was the subject of a public safety warning issued by police on November 5 after he was released on bail.

He was initially charged after three women reported to police that, as they walked on the campus of Western University the night of October 18, a man driving a black Honda Civic followed them. On the same night, a man in a black Honda Civic approached an 18-year-old woman on Elgin Road and gestured for her to get into his car. Then, on October 19, a 21-year-old woman was walking on Elgin Road around 5 p.m. when a man in a black Honda Civic passed her. The driver turned the car around before stopping directly in front of her. Singh was arrested and charged with five counts of criminal harassment by repeated following.

A few days later, Singh was arrested again after a 21-year-old woman reported that a man driving a black Honda Civic followed her at a slow rate of speed as she walked to a home on Patricia Street.
