Peterborough police have charged former OHL goalie Michael Giugovaz with sexual assault.
Police say the charge stems from an incident in late July at a George Street establishment.
Investigators say the victim, a woman in her late teens, was out with friends when she was allegedly sexually assaulted by an unknown male.
“Through the investigation the male was identified. On August 12th, the accused attended the Peterborough Police station where he was placed under arrest,” stated police in a media release.
Giugovaz, 21, of Newdale Place, Brampton, is charged with sexual assault.
He was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on September 8th.
Giugovaz played for the London Knights during the 2014-2015 season. He also played for the Peterborough Petes, Belleville Bulls, Windsor Spitfires, and Guelph Storm during his OHL career.
