Investigators with the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) Child and Sexual Assault Unit have made an arrest after an investigation into a historical sexual assault.

The assault, which took place more than a decade ago, was recently reported to police. In order to protect the identity of the victim, no further information on the incident and this investigation will be provided by police.

On March 4, 2022, Sean James (54) of Milton was arrested and charged with one count of Sexual Assault.

James was released from custody pending a court appearance.

Investigators believe that there may be additional victims and are urging anyone who may have been victimized by this accused or who has any information to contact the Child and Sexual Assault Unit at 905-825-4777 ext. 8970.

Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers. “See something? Hear something? Know something? Contact Crime Stoppers” at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.ca.

Sexual assault is any touching of another person without their consent where the touching is of a sexual nature, or where the sexual integrity of the victim is violated. A sexual assault can range from unwanted touching to sexual assault involving penetration.

There is no statute of limitation when it comes to reporting a sexual assault. This means that no matter how long ago the sexual assault happened, you can still report it to police for investigation.

Victims of violence and/or sexual assault can contact the Halton Regional Police Service Victim Services Unit at 905-825-4777 for support.

Additional information about the sexual assault investigative process is available via the HRPS Sexual Assault Information Guide, which  can be found on our website: https://www.haltonpolice.ca/en/services-and-reporting/resources/Documents/Sexual_Assault_Information_Guide_2021.pdf
