A Guelph Uber driver has been charged with sexual assault, police say.

Officers began investigating sexual assault allegations on March 7 after the female victim came forward to police.

The alleged assault occurred "on or about" March 7, Const. Chris Probst told CBC News in an email.

"I can't speak specifically to when the assault occurred, but can confirm that it did happen in Guelph," he said.

On Friday, police charged an Uber driver with sexual assault.

The 59-year-old Guelph man will appear in court April 26.
