For the second time in two years, the RCMP in the Northwest Territories is being criticized for how it handled two victims of sexual assault.

In a recent case, a 13-year-old girl was taken to jail after she had been sexually assaulted.

Wade Kapakatoak pleaded guilty to the assault and convicted.

The assault was captured on a surveillance camera in the back alley at a Yellowknife movie theatre.

When police arrived, they were told by a theatre employee that she had been sexually assaulted.
