Police arrest Ladner high school teacher for alleged sexual assault

43-year-old male taken into custody following report from young girl

Delta Police have arrested a Delta Secondary School teacher for the alleged sexual assault of a young girl.

On Nov. 4 police responded to the high school in response to a report of an alleged sexual assault. Upon arrival, a young girl who was at the school told investigators she had been sexually assaulted by an unknown adult male near the school gym.

The Delta Police Department’s Sexual Offence Unit conducted an investigation over the weekend, and on Nov. 6 arrested a 43-year-old male. Police are recommending charges of sexual assault and sexual interference. The suspect, who is a teacher at DSS, was transported to Delta Police headquarters where he was released on a Promise to Appear in Court, and an Undertaking with conditions including: no contact directly or indirectly with the victim or witnesses; no going to Delta Secondary School; no contact with any female under the age of 16.

Police have been working with the Delta Board of Education throughout the investigation, and will continue to liaise with them as the investigation continues.

At this point the name of the suspect can not be released until formal charges are approved by Crown Council.

Investigators are asking that anyone who may have information about this, or any other similar incident to call Delta Police at 604-946-4411
