An Ontario man who allegedly failed to disclose his HIV status to a romantic partner is being sought by Toronto police and investigators believe there may be other victims

In a news release issued Monday, police said a 35-year-old man engaged in an “intimate relationship” with a woman between 2019 and 2021 after meeting online.

Police allege that X was HIV positive during that time and failed to disclose that information to his partner.

A resident of Stoney Creek, Ont., which is just east of Hamilton, X is known to use online dating apps, police said.

“Police are concerned there may be other victims and are urging anyone who had sexual intercourse with X to seek medical attention and contact police,” a news release read.
