The woman was not physically hurt, and police said it appeared the attack was unprovoked.

“It happened in a busy neighbourhood and targeted a woman who was minding her own business,” Sgt. Steve Addison said in a news release at the time.

Ferrey was arrested on Feb. 18 — two days after police released surveillance video of the suspect walking in the alley before and after the incident.
