Ontario’s police watchdog says a former Brampton officer was involved in an alleged sexual assault dating back more than 50 years.

The Special Investigations Unit says an individual contacted the agency in November 2019 with a complaint against the former officer.

The alleged incidents occurred in Brampton between 1967 to 1972, when Frank Kohler was a member of the Brampton Police Force.

The department merged with Peel Regional Police in 1974, and Mr. Kohler later resigned.

The SIU says Mr. Kohler has been charged with two counts indecent assault and two counts of gross indecency, and is due in court in Brampton on Oct. 6.
