A Vancouver police officer has been charged with sexual assault following an RCMP investigation into an alleged incident that occurred in Whistler last year.
It is believed the alleged assault occurred a few days prior to the police receiving the complaint.
During the course of the investigation, police learned that the man they were investigating was a Vancouver Police Department officer.
Following the investigation, 51-year-old Jagraj Roger Berar was charged with sexual assault. The RCMP believes this was an isolated incident involving persons known to each other.
Police do not believe the allegations are related to his employment as a police officer.
