Vancouver police arrest Mountie for alleged indecent acts near all-girls school

March 14, 2019 - 7:43 AM

VANCOUVER - An RCMP officer in Vancouver is accused of performing indecent acts while off duty near a private all-girls school in the city.

Vancouver police say the man was arrested Tuesday and has since been released on several conditions.

His name has not been released because police say charges have not yet been approved.

The arrest follows a lengthy sexual misconduct investigation into alleged incidents near York House school on Vancouver's west side.

Dawn Roberts, an RCMP spokeswoman, confirms in a statement that the suspect is a Mountie.

Roberts says the officer is suspended with pay and an internal code of conduct investigation has been launched. (CTV)
