News release

A 25-year-old man originally from India, but residing in Halifax, N.S., has been arrested following sexual assault incidents in Moncton.

On July 7, 2024, at approximately 2 p.m., members of the Codiac Regional RCMP responded to a report of sexual interference and sexual assault at a public water park on Mountain Road in Moncton. When police arrived at the scene, they learned that a man had been walking around the premises, and was groping people. There were at least twelve victims, some of whom were under the age of 16.

Police located the individual who was still on the premises, and arrested him without incident. He was later released from custody, and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on October 24

"This is still an active investigation, and we are working diligently to understand if there were other victims," says Sgt. Sylvette Hebert with the Codiac Regional RCMP. "We are asking parents to speak to their children if they attended this location on July 7. We also want people to know that a sexual assault complaint can be made at any time. If you are a victim of sexual misconduct, please contact us. You will be listened to, and you will be believed."

If you are a victim, or have any information related to these incidents or similar ones, please contact your local police. If you have information that may assist the investigation and would like to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
