The Nova Scotia RCMP has charged a man in a sexual assault against a girl that took place more than a decade ago.

In a release, police said they received a complaint on Aug. 13, 2021, of a sexual assault that happened around 15 years ago on New Years Day.

“The victim was either 11 or 12 at the time, and following New Years Eve celebrations, she had gone to sleep for the night,” the release said. “She was then awoken by a man who sexually assaulted her.”
