A 55-year-old Iqaluit man faces four charges related to sex crimes against children.

Craig Dunphy, the former owner of Pai-Pa Taxi in Iqaluit, faces two counts of luring a child, one count of procuring a child and one count of sexual exploitation of a young person.

On Sept. 23, the Nunavut RCMP began its investigation into allegations against Dunphy.

As a result of this inquiry by Iqaluit detachment’s general investigation section and general duty members, along with the assistance of the newly formed special victims’ unit, Dunphy was arrested, an RCMP release said.

This investigation is ongoing, police said.

“The RCMP are encouraging anyone who may have information on Mr. Dunphy’s activities or who may have been a victim of Mr. Dunphy to please come forward to the Iqaluit RCMP in person or via phone at 867-979-0123,” the RCMP news release said.

A court date has not yet been set.
