Prince George RCMP say a man has been charged in connection with a kidnapping and sex assault last month.
Mounties say 26-year-old Sukhjinder Singh appeared in court Wednesday afternoon and was charged with kidnapping and sexual assault for an attack on a woman September 3 of this year.
The woman was trying to fix a flat tire in the very early hours when someone offered to help her. When they could not fix the tire, the man offered to drive her home, but instead, took her to a parking lot where she was attacked.
RCMP say the arrest and charges are the result of hard work, tips from the public, and forensic evidence.
Investigators say they are aware of similarities of other incidents, including an attack on a female jogger this spring and a number of incident acts earlier in the year.
Police say the files remain open and under investigation.
