An Igloolik man arrested Tuesday faces 10 charges, including two counts of sexual assault.

In a news release Friday, RCMP described their investigation as “ongoing” and said investigators “believe there may be additional victims in Igloolik.”

The 23-year-old suspect is also charged with making an obscene picture; committing an indecent act; sexual interference; choking; break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence; and three counts of breach of probation, the release said.

The man is being held in custody and is scheduled to make his first court appearance June 23.

RCMP in Igloolik ask anyone with information to contact investigators at 867-934-0123.

      stating the name can possibly bring forward additional victims.
      All victims need justice and by seeing that someone brought this criminal to court, if there are others, hopefully any others will come forward.

      I wonder why Nunatsiaq News over and over again try to protect the wicked by not publishing their names,

        Particularly when the police have released their names. Makes absolutely no sense, especially in this instance, since the article makes a point of relaying the RCMP’s concern about additional victims. How do you know if you are an “additional victim” of this suspect if you aren’t provided with the name the suspect? Without that detail, this is an article about nothing.

        It might as well have read “RCMP have arrested some guy and believe there could be additional victims. If you have any information about some guy, give the RCMP a call.”

        This article does zero to assist the RCMP with this investigation.

        Perhaps they have not been found guilty in a court of law?
        Why don’t YOU use YOUR name when posting?

          Why would anyone have to post their name on a news article when it’s clearly Nunatsiaq News not publishing the name of the suspect even when the RCMP released the name?

          RCMP had no trouble releasing their names in their release. This article is about that release. When my name appears in an RCMP media and public information release, I will expect my name to be published in subsequent news articles regarding the RCMP announcement.
          Also, why do you feel the need to “yell” or get in commenters’ faces by using caps in your comments. Strong ,well-worded comments shouldn’t require the print equivalent of yelling, finger pointing, or shoving your face in the faces of others by using caps as liberally as you do. It is obnoxious and rude.

          Yes everyone is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law in Canada.

          However, there is no privacy in a court of law unless ordered by a judge. Anyone can attend court and see what is going and request transcripts.

          For our judicial system to be open and transparent, records must be published and kept to ensure due process was followed.

          Once a suspect has been formally charged, the name can be released to the public.
