Police arrest HIV positive Richmond Hill man for sex offences

Police believe the 26 year old infected a minor back in 2011...


York Regional Police have charged a 26 year old Richmond Hill man with a number of sexual offences, and now officers are worried there could be more victims out there.

Roman Krouglov would troll online classified websites and post in the 'casual encounters' section with the reply email of

The investigation originally started in February of this year when police were called to a home in Richmond Hill where it's believed Krouglov allegedly assaulted a woman, and threatened her with death.

Digging a little further, police determined that back in October of 2011, Krouglov allegedly had unprotected sex with a minor, while knowing he was HIV positive.

The young woman was then infected with the disease.

He's been charged with sexual interference, aggravated sexual assault, assault, assault with a weapon, uttering threats to cause death.

Police fear there could be a history, and there could be 'quite a few incidents' with more victims out there.

Constable Andy Pattenden wanted to remind any potential victims, that there is no statute of limitations for sexual offences and offenders can be prosecuted well after the date of the offence.

    How is having unprotected sex while infected with HIV not considered attempted murder? It makes no sense.

      @Todd ... but only 'after' I get some dating advice from him first. Then afterwards I'm all for giving him the Death Penalty :)

      @Jack Let him go? Where do you get that out of 'take him out back and be done with him."

      That to me sounds like put a bullet in the back of his head.
