A Kamloops man is charged with sexual assault as part of an investigation that began last July.

On July 9, 2023, Kamloops RCMP frontline officers received a report of a sexual assault that had allegedly occurred on a walking path between Strathcona Terrace and St. Paul Street West. At the time, Kamloops police asked for the public’s assistance in furthering the investigation, which included a request for video and information from anyone who may have been in the area.

Since then, the investigation has continued to advance with the support of our General Investigations Support Team and Sex Crimes Unit, and led us to the next stage of the judicial process in which a suspect has been charged and will appear in court, said Superintendent Jeff Pelley, Kamloops RCMP Detachment’s Officer in Charge.

Ryan Joseph Gallant, 40, of Kamloops BC, is charged with one count of sexual assault. He was recently served a summons to appear in court on June 13, 2024.

As the matter is now before the courts, no further information will be released by the Kamloops RCMP Detachment.
