Cops link former teacher to cold-case sex assault

  • Print

A former Winnipeg school teacher has been linked to a random, three-year-old sexual assault following a lengthy investigation by police.

Kirt Cameron, 41, was arrested this week and charged with the "cold case" attack. None of the allegations has been proven and he is presumed innocent.

A 23-year-old woman told police she was grabbed by an unknown man on a bike as she walked in the 300 block of Manitoba Avenue in September 2011. She was then dragged between two nearby garages and sexually assaulted.

Cameron wasn't hard for police to find -- he's currently in custody, without bail, on another sexual assault charge. He was arrested last November for allegedly grabbing a 29-year-old woman as she walked in the 100 block of Sutherland Avenue in September 2013.

In that case, the victim says she was dragged to a nearby building, sexually assaulted and robbed. That case remains before the courts.

Cameron was previously convicted in 2001 of attacking a teenage prostitute in his Pembina Highway apartment while arguing over payment for sex.
