Winnipeg police have charged a 32-year-old junior high teacher in Winnipeg with sexual assault and child luring following an investigation.

According to police, the child abuse unit received a report in October 2022 about an alleged sexual assault and luring of a teenage student at Acadia Junior High School in Winnipeg’s Fort Richmond area.

Police said the survivor reported an inappropriate relationship between her and a male teacher over seven months in 2021 and 2022. During this time, there was allegedly sexual communication over social media.

The survivor also alleges one time at school, the teacher attempted to kiss her, but she pulled away from here and ran. The survivor was not physically injured, police said.

On March 4, a former teacher at Acadia Junior High was arrested.

He was charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and two counts of child luring. The charges have not been tested in court.
