A Halifax Regional Police officer has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman following an investigation by the province’s Serious Incident Response Team.
In early November, SIRT received a complaint from a woman who said a police officer had sexually assaulted her.
The agency says the incidents are alleged to have taken place at the home of the accused on Nov. 2 and 3 and that the pair knew each other.
Const. Chris Mosher, a four-year member of the force, is charged with sexual assault and administering a noxious thing with intent to aggrieve in connection with the case.
The 29-year-old officer was arrested on Dec. 11, released on conditions, and charged in the case Wednesday.
He is due to appear in provincial court on Feb. 13.
SIRT is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia.
