Sexual assault survivors now have another option for reporting what happened to them. That information will be entered into a national database that tracks violent offenders, even though it will not be treated the same as a formal complaint to police.

For allegedly sexually assaulting a minor girl four years ago at police station limits, the district special court on Friday sentenced an accused to five years in jail and a fine.

Asst. Chief Garcia said in a statement, "Edinburg Police Investigators believe this may not have been the first time Melquisedec Chan has committed this type of crime and are urging any other people who may have been victimized by Melquisedec Chan to file a report with their local police department".

Police say she threatened to continue assaulting staff at the foster home and was lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre. Sullivan said Dillon was taken into custody without incident. Police said he retreated into the residence and refused commands to exit. "So it doesn't necessarily mean a criminal investigation, but I think it's a good way for us to get a sense of how much is happening in the community".


Leslie Spillet of Ka Ni Kanichihk speaks at the press conference Monday.

Dawes was charged with illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, simple assault, terroristic threats, recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest, harassment and disorderly conduct.

Police say the alleged victim suffered a cut below his eye and the two suspects, aged 18 and 17, both from Brandon, were later arrested.
