A Saskatoon massage therapist is facing three additional sexual assault-related charges in a third round of charges laid by the municipal police force.

Police say the new charges against Kenneth Braun, 66, are linked to assaults allegedly committed between 1996 and 2021.

He was expected in Saskatoon provincial court Monday afternoon.

Braun was first charged in June after a woman, 31, reported being sexually assaulted during a massage therapy session in April of this year.

He was subsequently accused with four more counts related to sexual assault and sexual exploitation in July, in connection with incidents that allegedly happened between 1996 and 2021.

Investigators are asking anyone who believes Braun assaulted them to come forward to police.
