Const. Sameer Kara charged with 2 other Toronto copy with sexual assault

A Toronto cop who once appeared in a TV documentary film about dating in the South Asian community is among three Toronto Police constables who have each been charged with sexual assault and gang sexual assault.

The Toronto Police announced on Thursday that three Toronto cops from their 51 Division had been arrested and charged in the alleged offences that were committed while the officers were off duty on January 17:

* Constable Sameer Kara, 31, with six years’ service.

* Constable Joshua Cabero, 28, with four years’ service.

* Constable Leslie Nyznik, 38, with five years’ service.

They appeared in court and were released on bail. They will be back in court on March 20.

According to, Kara appeared in a TV documentary film about dating in the South Asian community.

He said: “I’m looking to get married. My parents expect me to be there already. I know what I want. Now, does what I want actually exist? I don’t know.”

He was 26 at the time and described what he wanted in a potential partner: “Family values, respect, someone that has a career or who’s in school who’s trying to get a career. Someone in the South Asian community because at the end of the day, it’s easier, you have things in common. There’s nothing wrong to marry outside of the community, but I’m looking to stay in the box.”

“Am I looking for the modern type? Yes and no. I want someone that has the old family values and culture that my parents were brought up with.”
