A Peel Regional Police officer is facing a sexual assault charge stemming from an alleged incident that occurred earlier this year.
Tony Loparco, the director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), has determined that a charge be laid against an officer in connection to an incident that reportedly occurred in May of 2017.
The SIU says it was contacted by Peel police on May 27 regarding a complaint of a sexual nature against the 45-year-old Constable Kevin McCulloch.
The SIU says the alleged assault reportedly occurred in the spring against a woman. The SIU invoked its mandate as a result.
