A Delta man is facing 11 charges after an investigation which began in March 2019 in which a victim and a third party came forward to police about allegations regarding assaults and threats.

The investigation is being led by the Delta Police Major Crimes section. The allegations concern incidents that occurred in Ladner in March 2019, and involve two separate victims. The victims were briefly known to the suspect.

He also faces a charge of dangerous operation of a vehicle, and a charge from May 2019 of breaching his conditions.
