Eastern Ontario OPP officer charged with criminal harassment
37-year-old officer is currently on leave, OPP say
An Ontario Provincial Police officer working out of a detachment in the east region has been charged with criminal harassment.
The OPP's professional standards bureau launched an investigation into the provincial constable in September 2014 after a complaint was filed.
The 37-year-old officer was arrested four months later on Jan. 29. He is charged with two counts of criminal harassment and one count of unlawfully being in a dwelling.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Renfrew on March 25.
The man is a 13-year member of the OPP and is "presently on leave," OPP said in a media release.
His name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victim.
