A former superintendent with the Ontario Provincial Police has been charged with sexual assault.

The Special Investigations Unit says that it was contacted in July 2020 about a woman being assaulted.

The alleged incident occurred in Toronto in February of 2014.

A single charge of sexual assault has been laid against William Price and the SIU says he’s expected in court in early March.

Ontario’s police watchdog says it will make no further comments about the charges as the matter is now before the courts.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates events involving the police that have resulted in death, serious injury, or reports of sexual assault.
