Man charged with sexual assault of 3 young girls


    A 38-year-old man has been charged with sexual offences against three female minors.

    The suspect was held during a sting operation over the weekend, having been in hiding from the police since May 2020.

    On April 12th 2020, two of the girls, ages six and 10, were taken to a river, by a man who is known to the family.

    The girls say while there, the man sexually assaulted the six-year-old in the presence of the 10-year-old, and then masturbated in their presence.

    A report was made and during the course of the investigation, officers found that the man had been forcing a 12-year-old girl to have sex since March 2020.

    He has now been charged with three counts of sexual penetration of a child, one count of sexual touching of a child and one count of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
