Huron County OPP have laid more charges in connection with a sexual assault case from earlier this month.
Officers say it was around 6:30 p.m. on June 18th when a woman on the MacNaughton-Morrison Trail between Exeter and the Morrison Dam Conservation Area reported being sexually assaulted by a suspect who approached her from behind.
Days later, investigators announced they’d arrested a 19-year-old man from Exeter in connection with the case and charged him with two counts of failing to comply with a probation order. On Friday, the OPP updated those charges adding one count each of sexual assault and robbery.
Officers say the suspect is currently in police custody and will be in Goderich for a court appearance on Friday.
Officers say their investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact them at 1-888-310-1122 or (519) 524-8314 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
