Alberta RCMP constable charged with 2 counts of sexual assault

A constable with the RCMP faces two counts of sexual assault in connection with three separate incidents since 2012, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team announced Thursday.

Susan Hughson, the executive director of ASIRT, said an investigation started in July 2016 after a woman came to the RCMP with an allegation of sexual assault against a member. Hughson said the incident occurred at the Red Deer City RCMP detachment.

During the investigation, Hughson said ASIRT became aware of two other, unrelated incidents. She said two of the three incidents happened while the officer was on duty.

“With respect to two of the incidents, he was posted at the Red Deer RCMP detachment,” Hughson said. “The third incident, he was at a rural detachment.”
