Northern Ont. teen, 13, facing new sexual assault charge, 10 total

A 13-year-old male from Elliot Lake in northern Ontario has been charged with sexual assault again after another survivor came forward, bringing the total number of charges to 10.

The teen has been arrested several times in an ongoing sexual assault investigation and the latest was June 6.

The newest charge is connected to an allegation from February that was reported to police on the day of his first arrest, May 5.

To date, a total of seven people of similar age have accused him of sexual assault, Ontario Provincial Police told CTV News.

Two assault charges have also been laid June 6 against the teen in connection to a complaint received last month.

He is also charged with mischief in connection to a complaint that the accused damaged the victim's cellphone.

After the initial charges were laid last month, the teen was charged with breaching release conditions after allegations they were messaging one of the victims on Snapchat despite an order not to.

The accused is scheduled to appear in court on the latest charges July 10.
