A member of the Canadian military based in Toronto faces several charges including sexual assault in connection with a number of alleged incidents in Halifax.
The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service says Master Corporal Anthony Chand also faces charges of sexual assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement, harassing communication and conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline of the military.
Master Corp. Chand is a regular force imagery technician currently assigned to the Canadian Forces College in north Toronto.
The charges are in connection with a number of incidents that allegedly occurred between December, 2014, and July, 2015, in Dartmouth and Halifax, while Master Corp. Chand was serving with the Military Operations Support and Intelligence Centre, known as Trinity.
The investigation began last June after a complaint by an individual who was a member of the military at the time of the alleged incidents.
A date and location for a court martial hearing have not been determined.
