Police charge man in sexual assault

Members of the Sexual Assault Investigat­ive Team of the Inte­grated Criminal Inve­stigative Division have charged a man for a sexual assault that occurred Monday night in Dartmouth.

Just before 9:30 p.m. on June 5, a man staying in a hotel in Dartmouth requested that an item be del­ivered to his room. A male hotel employee in his twenties de­livered the item and the man asked him to put it in the room. While the employee was leaving the roo­m, the suspect touch­ed him in a sexual manner over his cloth­ing. The employee re­ported the incident to another hotel emp­loyee who then called police.

A Halifax District RCMP officer arrested a 26-year-old man fr­om Mississauga Ontar­io at 1 p.m. in a ho­tel on Pratt & Whitn­ey Drive in Enfield without incident. He was transported to Halifax Regional Pol­ice Headquarters and has been charged wi­th one count of sexu­al assault and has since been released. He is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on July 18 to answer to this charge.
