Charges laid in Drumheller sexual interference investigation

CourtHouse1

The Drumheller RCMP conducted an investigation into child sexual interference allegations which has resulted in charges laid against a 21-year-old Drumheller man.

On June 19, 2017 Drumheller RCMP received a complaint from a parent against a local daycare worker at a daycare facility in Drumheller. A thorough investigation involving the Sheldon Kennedy Centre in Calgary and the RCMP Major Crimes Unit has resulted in charges being laid. Once an investigation was initiated, two other victims were identified, each involving a different offence date.

Anthony Piecowye has been charged with three counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference. He has been released with conditions and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court of Alberta in Drumheller on September 22, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

The identities, including the ages and sex of these young victims, will not be disclosed by the RCMP. These charges are now before the courts and further information will not be made available.

If you have information about this investigation, please call the Drumheller RCMP at 403-823-7590 or call your local police detachment.  If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.
