Maple Ridge, B.C - A Maple Ridge man has been formally convicted of multiple sex assaults which occurred over a 30 year period.

On January 7, 2016, a woman reported that she had been sexually assaulted by an X-Ray Technician working at a hospital 2001. As the investigation progressed it was determined there were multiple victims dating back to 1990 and 1997. As a result of this new investigation, charges were able to be forwarded in other investigations that were lacking in evidence.

It’s never too late to come forward if you have been a victim of a sexual assault," states Constable Julie Klaussner. "This is an example of one person coming forward only to discover there are multiple women in a similar situation. The courage displayed by these women in coming forward has most definitely resulted in preventing further victimization and we applaud these strong women in sharing their story with police."

On October 26, 2020, Allen James Brooks was convicted of 2 counts of sexual assault. Sentencing is expected in January 2021.
