Iqaluit businessman Craig Dunphy now faces six charges of sex crimes against children after a third complainant stepped forward with allegations.

Police charged Dunphy, 56, with four counts of sex crimes against minors in September, including luring and sexual exploitation. Those charges stemmed from two complainants.

Police laid two more charges on Nov. 1 after a third complainant came forward: one count of luring a child for sex and one count of procuring a child.

None of these charges have been proven in court.

Four of the alleged incidents occurred in January, while two occurred in 2017, according to police.

One incident allegedly involved Dunphy, former owner of Pai-Pa Taxi, asking a youth over Facebook to let him perform oral sex on the youth for $500, according to the charge sheet.

As part of their investigation, police seized six phones, six tablets, one digital camera, one film camera, two laptops and two digital memory sticks, according to a seizure of property form.

Dunphy was released on bail Sept. 27. His case, addressed in court on Nov. 4, was scheduled to come before the court again on Dec. 2.
