HALIFAX – A police constable in Halifax has been charged with sexual assault after a month-long investigation.

Halifax Regional Police confirmed that 35-year old Const. Pierre-Paul Cadieux was arrested Tuesday morning.

Police allege Cadieux committed a sexual assault in the Halifax area in mid-2016.

Investigators say Cadieux was not an employee of Halifax Regional Police at the time, but he was in training to become an officer.
