Officers are thanking the public for their assistance in identifying the suspect in a sexual assault that occurred in July at a pool in Bedford.
At 9:05 p.m. on July 5, officers responded to the Bedford Outdoor Pool, located at 277 Shore Drive, to a report that a man had inappropriately touched a woman while she was in the children’s pool.
Police released photos of the suspect and received several tips from the public that led to identifying the man.
Yesterday at approximately 4:55 p.m., officers arrested 26-year-old Brian James MacDonald of Hammonds Plains without incident.
He appeared in Halifax Provincial Court today to face charges of sexual assault and breach of recognizance.
