Thunder Bay OPP officer charged with sexual assault, SIU says

An investigation by Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has led to a sexual assault charge against an Ontario Provincial Police officer in Thunder Bay, according to the police watchdog.

In a written release on Wednesday, the interim director of the SIU, Joseph Martino, said the charge comes from an incident that allegedly occurred in the early 2000's.

Investigators started looking into the incident after being contacted by the OPP in February 2019 regarding a reported sexual assault against a woman sometime between April 2001 and March of 2002.

As a result, 43-year-old OPP Const. John Hayes from the Thunder Bay OPP detachment is charged with one count of sexual assault.

He is expected to appear in court July 16.

The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been a death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.

An OPP Officer in Thunder Bay faces charges of sexual assault

The Interim Director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Joseph Martino, has caused a charge to be laid against an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer in relation to an incident that reportedly occurred in the early 2000’s.

The SIU was contacted by the OPP on February 5, 2019 regarding a complaint received that same day of a sexual nature against the officer with the Thunder Bay detachment. The alleged sexual assault reportedly occurred sometime between April of 2001 and March of 2002 against a woman.

As a result of the SIU investigation, 43-year-old OPP Constable John Hayes is facing one count of sexual assault, contrary to s. 271 of the Criminal Code.

Constable Hayes is required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice at 125 Brodie Street North in Thunder Bay on July 16, 2019.

The matter is now properly before the courts. In consideration of the fair trial interests of the accused, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
