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, Drumheller RCMP received a complaint from a parent against a local daycare worker. 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 Friday, Sept. 22 at 10 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.
