A male suspect was found dead after he allegedly assaulted three women in Mississauga Monday evening, Peel police say. 

According to Const. Heather Cannon, officers received a call for a disturbance around 10:20 p.m. at a residence in the area of Burnhamthorpe Road East and Ponytrail Drive. 

Officers located three women who had been assaulted by a suspect who was known to them. 

The women were transported to hospital in serious, but non-life-threatening condition, Cannon said. 

Meanwhile, police warned that the suspect had fled the scene and may have been armed with a weapon. 

The suspect was found dead by officers a short time later close to the location of the incident. His death is not being considered as suspicious.
