An Ottawa man is facing 29 more charges in a case involving women being touched inappropriately while riding transit.

Late last month, Ottawa Police Service investigators were looking for a suspect in a string of such incidents which dated back nearly a year ago. 

On March 28, officers announced charges against 37-year-old Mohammed El-Husseini.

At the time, police were concerned there could be other victims.

El-husseini now faces 33 counts of sexual assault.
