A Kamloops man is facing charges related to two sexual assault reports from this summer.

On Oct. 4, 2023, the BC Prosecution Service approved recommended charges of sexual assault following an investigation that began on July 17, 2023, when two women reported incidents that occurred at the same location, within minutes of each other, around 4:40 p.m. on the 200-block of Seymour Street.

In working together with our frontline officers, members of the Kamloops RCMP Detachment’s Sex Crimes Unit and General Investigations Support Team were able to quickly identify a suspect and advance the investigation to the charge recommendation stage, said Superintendent Jeff Pelley, Officer in Charge of the Kamloops RCMP Detachment. On Oct. 4, the BC Prosecution Service approved charges and requested a warrant for the accused, leading to his being taken into custody by police on Oct. 5, where he remains until his next court appearance.

Justin James Brown-Henderson, 29, of Kamloops is charged with two counts of sexual assault. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 13.

No further information is available for release as the matter is now before the courts.
