Six charges of sexual assault as 12 women have come forward with complaints thus far
On Tuesday afternoon in Yorkton, RCMP announced they have charged a former doctor who practiced there with six counts of sexual assault.
In 2001 an adult female contacted the Yorkton RCMP to file a report of a sexual assault. Since the start of the initial investigation, 12 females in total have come forward with a complaint of a similar nature. The offences took place between 2001 and 2008 and all victims reported that they first encountered the accused at a medical facility in Yorkton where the accused worked as a physician. All victims were adults at the time the offences took place.
Investigators conducted a lengthy investigation and on February 2, 2016, Mohammed Haque (1944-01-09) was arrested at his residence in London, Ontario and charged with:
- Six counts, sexual assault, section 271 of the Criminal Code
Haque has been released on conditions, including no contact with any victims, and will appear in Yorkton Provincial Court on Monday, February 22, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.
While charges have been laid in relation to these six complaints, there may be other victims who would have encountered Haque through his work in the medical field. Therefore, investigators are asking anyone with information to please come forward.
