Police say a man from Nova Scotia has been charged with sexual assault after an incident last week.

In a release, Kings District RCMP said police received a complaint Friday about alleged inappropriate contact that took place between an 18-year-old man and a male youth near Greenwood.

“The man was already in custody at the time of the complaint, as he had been found to breaching conditions of his release order in a separate matter” a release issued on Monday said.
