Man charged with rape, sexual assault in Ambler

Sexual assaults often go widely unreported, as victims don't wish to become part of a police investigation or court proceedings.

Third-party reporting doesn't come with any extra resources for community clinics, but the province and the agencies say they will be monitoring the demand.

However, if survivors aren't comfortable speaking with police, that doesn't mean officers won't investigate a third-party report, he said.

Clifton Dillon, 45, 117 Quitman Drive, McComb, has been charged with sexual battery in connection with the assault of a vulnerable adult, McComb police Detective Lt. Shannon Sullivan said. Those who cannot visit one of the agencies can instead call and speak to someone.




According to Edinburg Police, "The victim reported knowing Melquisedec Chan as a pastor at a church she attended in Mission, Texas who was also believed to practice medicine in Mexico".

Manitoba is the third jurisdiction in Canada to make third-party reporting a tool for police, said Rochelle Squires, the provincial minister responsible for the status of women. With the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, there has been an increase, she said. "When she resisted, he beat her up and threatened to kill her", said DCP MN Tiwari.

Leoncio Sacramento-Benitez, 39, of the unit block of York Road, was arrested February 1 and charged with 10 counts each of rape, sexual assault, terroristic threats, false imprisonment, simple assault and harassment.
