A RCMP constable in northern Saskatchewan has been charged with one count of assault. At 8:20 a.m. CT on April 1, the Stanley Mission Health Clinic called police to investigate the injuries to an 18-year-old woman.

Investigators determined that shortly before the complaint, a physical altercation involving an off-duty RCMP member took place outside a residence in Stanley Mission.

The 18-year-old woman has since been released from the health clinic.
