Man faces sexual assault causing bodily harm and other charges

A Halifax man who has been charged on three other occasions with sexual assault is now facing charges in relation to a separate incident that occurred in 2013.

On June 3, 2018 police received a report that a woman had been sexually assaulted by a man known to her in late November 2013 at a residence in Halifax.

As a result of the investigation into this incident, the Sexual Assault Investigative Team of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged 35-year-old Mathew Albert Percy with sexual assault causing bodily harm, choking to overcome resistance and assault. He is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date.

Sexual assault investigations are very complex.  As part of our victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to sexualized violence, we work closely with victims to ensure they’re willing to proceed with a police investigation, which includes giving a statement about the incident. Police must also ensure the victim’s privacy is upheld and well-being is fully considered.
