Charges have been laid in an investigation into historical sexual assaults with faith-based affiliations.
In August of 2022, a report was made to police with allegations of sexual assault occurring between 2008 and 2012. The victim, a minor at the time, and the accused were known to one another through their affiliation with the Saskatoon faith-based institution.
As a result of investigation by members of the Saskatoon Police Service Interpersonal Violence Section, a 46-year-old Edmonton man has been charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation of a minor while in a position of trust or authority. He turned himself in to the SPS on January 31, 2023 and was subsequently arrested, processed, and released on conditions. He is expected to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on March 13, 2023 at 2:00 p.m..
(Court Information Number: 991221688)
If you believe a minor may have been sexually abused or exploited, the Saskatoon Police Service reminds members of the public of their legal responsibility to report it to the Ministry of Social Services, First Nations Child and Family Services, local police, or the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300.
