Ontario’s police watchdog has charged a veteran Thunder Bay-based provincial police officer with sexual assault in regard to an incident that allegedly occurred about 17 years ago.

The Special Investigations Unit said Wednesday the charge is based on an alleged assault against a woman sometime between April of 2001 and March 2002.

The OPP was contacted about the alleged incident in February this year. It notified the SIU the same day, the agency said.
