Waterloo man charged in April 30 sexual assault at Fergus business

FERGUS – Police have arrested and charged a Waterloo man in connection with a sexual assault at a Fergus business in April.

Wellington County OPP officials initially announced on May 7 that they were investigating an incident “at a retailer on St. David Street” on April 30 at about 5:45pm.

“A woman was sexually assaulted by an unknown male,” police stated in a press release at the time.

Despite asking for help to identify the man, police would not say where the incident occurred.

But an OPP spokesperson described the suspect as white, 50 to 60 years old, tall and “heavy set.”

Police say he was wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, hoody, blue spandex shorts and white sneakers.

In a later update on the incident, OPP officials stated the suspect may drive a Volkswagen and has an affinity for Spandex and discussing his “physique” with female strangers while they work.

Jeffery L. M. Cazabon, 47, of Waterloo, was charged with sexual assault, the OPP announced on July 3.

In May the OPP revealed there was a similar incident last summer at a business on Wellington Road 18 in Centre Wellington.

“It was reported that on the afternoon of [July 27] a male, wearing a pair of red ‘Spandex’ shorts, approached a female employee and made conversation,” police stated in a May 16 press release.

“He talked about how he had lost weight and wanted to show off his physique.”

The man, who drove a Volkswagen, told strangers that he owned more than one pair of Spandex shorts, including “blue and black pairs.”

Police say he also “referred to having a conversation about his physique with another woman, earlier that day, at a different local business.”

The OPP did not provide an update on these incidents in the July 3 press release.
