SIU charges Ottawa police sergeant with sexual assault

The province’s Special Investigations Unit has charged an Ottawa police sergeant with sexual assault.

The watchdog announced Friday that it had grounds to believe Sgt. Aasim Ansari sexually assaulted a woman while on duty and committed breach of trust by a public officer.

The allegations date back to October 2017. Ansari, a west division patrol officer, responded to a 911 call to Larga Baffin on Richmond Road, a residence for people from the Baffin Region and Nunavut who are in Ottawa for medical treatment. The SIU alleges that during the call Ansari sexually assaulted a woman. The woman was not arrested during the call and was not taken into police custody.
