On Saturday evening, officers arrested a 15-year-old female who was alleged to have assaulted an employee at a foster home on Louise Avenue.

Additional Sessions judge Amit Kumar acquitted both accused on the grounds of delay in lodging the case by the victim and unreliability of her evidence.

Winnipeg police, the province and community groups have announced a new way for victims of sexual assault to report the crime, even if they do not want to have contact with police or have the incident be dealt with by the courts.

A five-year-old girl was raped by her cousins in Amaravati Nagar colony.

When she spoke to media about the assault, she said the province was looking to follow British Columbia's lead to bring in third-party reporting.

She was released on a promise to appear in court in June. "If the testimony of the victim is trustworthy and reliable, the accused can be convicted on the sole testimony of reliable witness", it said.

According to police, the incidents took place between 2016 and 2018 at the Iris Day Spas, located at 1620 152 Street and at 10160 152 Street in Surrey.

The man sent the girl's mother out of his house to get lemons for treatment, after which he sexually assaulted her, it alleged, adding the child immediately ran out of the house and informed her mother. The claim was rejected by the court.
