The Toronto Police Service and the Peel Regional Police Service would like to make the public aware of an arrest in a Sexual Assault investigation.

It is alleged that:

– on three dates in 2016, a man met with two women on separate occasions

– the man committed a Sexual Assault on each of them.

On Monday, July 23, 2018, Jacob Hoggard, 34, of Vancouver, was arrested. He was charged with:

1) Sexual Interference

In March, the band was dropped from their slated JUNO Award performance. They had already been dropped by their management team, and blacklisted by a number of radio stations following claims that Hoggard had sexually assaulted a woman.
