Torontonians on Twitter and Facebook are sending out warnings, urging men and women to steer clear of a Little Italy bar.

According to the Toronto Police, it's alleged in the evening of December 16, a 24-year-old woman was given alcohol and illegal drugs and was sexually assaulted and forcibly confined in a bar near College and Manning.

Carasco Enzo Dejesus, 31, and Gavin MacMillan, 41, were arrested and each charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault as party to the offence with any other person and sexual assault.

As the Toronto Star reports, MacMillan is listed as the owner of the College Street Bar in Little Italy.

Women in Toronto are taking to Twitter and to the popular Facebook group Bunz Helping Zone to warn others about the incident.

The organization Sexual Assault Action Coalition addressed the allegations on its Facebook page, writing that it will launch a petition to keep College Street Bar shut down until staff undergo anti-violence and anti-harrassment training and put relating policies in place to keep customers safe.

We've reached out to the SAAC for comment but have yet to hear back. We also attempted to reach College Street Bar for comment but the business is closed today and their voicemail was full.
