London police are warning the public that a suspect in the attempted choking of a sex worker is no longer in police custody.

“William Louis McDonald, 28, was recently released from custody,” police officials said in a statement Monday afternoon.

The Thamesford man was charged on Jan. 24 with sexual assault and attempting to choke to overcome resistance.

The charges stem from a police investigation at a London motel on Jan. 16.

McDonald is described as a white man weighing 130 pounds and standing five-foot-three with brown hair and blue eyes.
