The RCMP said in a Wednesday news release that new information had come to light with regard to the 2013 incident.
That information “permitted investigators to forward this information to the BC Prosecution Service for consideration of additional criminal charges.”
Sagmoen has been charged with assault causing bodily harm in relation to that incident. No further details were available.
The latest charge was announced a month and a half after Sagmoen was charged with assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon following an incident that took place on Aug. 27, 2017.
The 37-year-old North Okanagan man will have a preliminary hearing on those charges Oct. 22 and 23.
He had also been charged with assaults following incidents that took place on or about July 1 and Aug, 10, 2017.
Those charges involved two victims who worked as online escorts and who advertised their services using a website known as backpage.ca/backpage.com.
The victims had attended locations that were close to 2290 Salmon River Road, the family farm property where Sagmoen was living.
Preliminary hearings on those accusations will take place Dec. 10 and 11.
