Police have been investigating a series of mischief incidents from July 2018 to the present day. The incidents involved used condoms being tied to unoccupied vehicles in the parking lot of shopping centers in Mississauga, which would then be discovered by the victims when they returned to their vehicles. There have been nine female victims identified at this time.   

On July 13, 2020, Peter Melegos, a 74-year-old man from Mississauga, was arrested and charged with 11 counts of Mischief Over, two counts of Criminal Harassment, one count of Commit an Indecent Act and one count of Voyeurism. He will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in the City of Brampton on September 18, 2020 in answer to the charges.

Peter Melegos is a white, 5'11" in height, light complexion, medium build, short and receding brown hair, thin-framed glasses and light brown facial hair.  He is known to travel in a black Honda CRV.

This investigation is still ongoing and investigators believe there may be other incidents that have occurred across the Greater Toronto Area. Investigators would like to thank the Ontario Provincial Police, Behavioural Science and Analysis Section for their assistance in this investigation.
