MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Ontario’s police watchdog says it has charged a member of the provincial police force with multiple counts of sexual assault.
The Special Investigations Unit says it began looking into allegations against the Ontario Provincial Police officer in June of this year.
The allegations dated back to incidents believed to have taken place between May 2009 and December 2011.
The SIU did not say whether the officer was on duty at the time of the alleged encounters, which involve one complainant.
The watchdog says Det. Sgt. Todd Amlin of the OPP’s Middlesex detachment is now facing four counts of sexual assault.
The SIU is an agency that investigates incidents involving police in which someone is killed, seriously injured or accused of sexual assault.
