A man faces charges in connection with a sexual assault that took place
Sunday evening in Shubie Park.
At approximately 8 p.m., a 19-year-old woman was jogging in Shubie Park
near a field and bridge. She passed a man who was walking in the
opposite direction and was grabbed from behind, forced into the woods
and sexually assaulted. As a result of on-going public pressure, a man
turned himself in at 7:40 p.m. last night at Police Headquarters.
A 19-year-old Dartmouth man is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth
Provincial Court today to face charges of sexual assault, uttering
threats and forcible confinement.
