NAPANEE, ON, April 19 /CNW/ - On April 16, 2011 at approximately 10:30 p.m. an unidentified male sexually assaulted a young girl in an elevator at the Hampton Inn, Napanee.

On December 11, 2009, the Quinte West detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Crime Unit investigated a sexual assault on another young girl that occurred in a corridor at the Holiday Inn, Quinte West.
