Most wanted man in Oakville hunted for horrific rape that traumatized young woman

Victim found distraught, partially-clothed

He is considered Oakville’s most wanted man and Halton Regional Police now aren’t sure if he’s even in Canada.

Mohammed Sodagari, 49, is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for two counts of sexual assault against a 21-year-old woman back on Oct. 27, 2005.

Sodagari was charged in this matter but was released from custody and later failed to attend court before suddenly disappearing. He was educated as an engineer in Iran and was working in a factory while in Canada, according to Halton police.

When Halton Regional Police found the distraught 21-year-old woman in an apartment stairwell on Marlborough Court near Sheridan College and just north of Oakville Place mall, she was partially-clothed and could barely speak, according to police.

The woman was taken to Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital where she was examined at Nina’s Place. She told police she had been taken to an apartment by an unknown man and sexually assaulted.

Sodagari is front and centre on Halton’s Most Wanted List and also appears on the RCMP’s wanted list.

RCMP officers said in a statement that Sodagari is “considered to be violent” and if he’s seen, police should be called immediately.
