Three men have now been charged for sexual assault in relation to a 2018 incident in Vancouver.

Just before 4:30 a.m. on November 5, 2018 University RCMP received a 911 call from a woman who reported she had been sexually assaulted by three men, at the residence in Vancouver on Acadia Road.

The University RCMP immediately launched an investigation and sought assistance and expertise from the BC RCMP Major Crime Section (MCS), who took conduct of the investigation.

The BC Prosecution Service has approved charges against three men allegedly involved in the assault. Treymont Levy, 26, Trivel Pinto, 25, and Ben Cummings, 24, have each been charged with one count each of sexual assault. Levy has been charged with one count of voyeurism in addition to the sexual assault charge.

The three men have been arrested and remain in police custody at this time. They are expected to appear in a Richmond Provincial court at a later date.

We understand there may be questions related to the circumstances around this assault but we respect that this matter now is before the court, as such no further information will be provided, states Acting Officer-In-Charge (A/OIC) Supt. Sanjaya Wijayakoon of the BC RCMP MCS

Our priority at this time is to prepare for, and to continue to provide support for the victim through the upcoming court process, continues Supt. Wijayakoon.
