A man who was working under the pretext of being a traditional healer or medicine man is faced with an additional count of sexual assault. Saskatchewan RCMP state that Cecil Wolfe faces a seventh charge related to the ongoing investigation.
Wolfe was first charged with one count of sexual assault in September 2021 by the Saskatoon Police sex crimes unit. Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) charged Wolfe with four counts of sexual assault. The RCMP will continue to collaborate with the Saskatoon Police Service’s Sex Crime Unit.
“Investigators believe there may be additional victims from over the past twenty years in the communities of Loon Lake, Blaine Lake, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, Saskatoon and surrounding areas,” police stated. “Victims reports Cecil Wolfe was working under the pretext of being a traditional healer or medicine man when they encountered him.”
Wolfe will appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on March 9 at 9:30 a.m. Police are encouraging victims to contact their local police service if they have information to share.
