The Calgary Police Service have charged a 56-year-old man from Calgary with aggravated sexual assault following a disturbing encounter with a 17-year-old girl from central Alberta.
Xavier Robert Bissonnette has been charged after he allegedly met the victim through an online dating website and continued to make contact with the girl. On Friday July 8, Bissonnette allegedly drove to a summer camp where the victim was attending, picked her up and took her to a location in Calgary where he then allegedly sexually assaulted the girl. To add to the tragedy, Bissonnette was diagnosed with HIV in 1998 and did not disclose his health status to the girl before having unprotected sex with the victim.
Bissonnette was caught by police when RCMP reported the girl had been taken out of the camp and gave a description of the vehicle the two were seen in. Calgary Police then traced the vehicle to an address in the southwest quadrant of the city. When they arrived at the home they found the victim in distress and arrested Bissonnette at the scene. Bissonnette has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to be appear in court on July 18.
The Calgary Police Service believes there may be other victims who are unaware of the suspect’s medical history and therefore are encouraging anyone who may have had unprotected sexual relations with him to contact them.
