A volunteer with the Sundre Minor Hockey Association is facing several charges in connection with a sexual assault investigation.

In a news release issued on Monday, Sundre RCMP said 32-year-old Alexa Suitor has been charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and four counts of making sexually explicit material available to a child.

Police said the investigation began on March 27 and that Suitor was arrested and charged on Friday.

The RCMP said investigators “determined that there were four victims, all male teenagers.”

Suitor has been released but must abide by a number of conditions and is scheduled to appear in court in Didsbury on April 22.

In a statement on April 9, Sundre Minor Hockey said the volunteer acted in an executive role with the board.

“While the allegations are not related to hockey activities or Sundre Minor Hockey, we have removed this individual from the board while the matter is before the courts,” said Amber Jenkins, vice president of Sundre Minor Hockey.

“To be clear, the accused was not a coach, manager or otherwise directly involved in the delivery of hockey programming to the kids of the association. To protect the integrity of the ongoing police investigation, we will not be making further comment.”
