In November 2023, Coronach RCMP received a report of a historic sexual assault.

The investigation determined an adult male sexually assaulted three male youths under 12 years old during the mid 2010s.

As a result of this ongoing investigation, on November 27, 2023, Saskatchewan RCMP’s General Investigation Section (GIS) with the assistance of the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) and the Coronach and Assiniboia RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in Assiniboia. An adult male was arrested without incident at the residence.

On November 28, 2023, a 46-year-old male of Assiniboia, SK, was charged with:

  • • three counts, sexual assault, Section 271, Criminal Code;
  • • three counts, sexual interference, Section 151, Criminal Code;
  • • two counts, invitation to sexual touching, Section 152, Criminal Code;
  • • three counts, make sexually explicit material available to a person under the age of 16, Section 171.1(1)(b), Criminal Code;
  • • one count, voyeurism, Section 162(4), Criminal Code; and
  • • one count, possession of child pornography 163.1(4), Criminal Code.

The accused was remanded into custody until his next scheduled appearance in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on November 29, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. 

It was determined that a home-based daycare was operating at this residence. The GIS and ICE units are continuing the investigation.

A thorough and sensitive investigation into instances of sexual offences is an utmost priority for the Saskatchewan RCMP. As part of this investigation – and any other investigation into reports of sexual offences against children or other vulnerable populations – Saskatchewan RCMP will work to determine if there are additional victims.

RCMP are unable to provide any additional detail at this time to protect investigational integrity as well as the privacy of the victims.

If you have information about this or any other crime, contact your local RCMP detachment by dialling 310-RCMP. Information can also be submitted anonymously by contacting Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or
