For Immediate Release

Mischief – Arrest: C19-15148

Members of the Winnipeg Police Service’s Child Abuse Unit have arrested and charged a man after parents located a substance believed to be seminal fluid in their children’s clothing while at the Frank Kennedy/Active Living Centre on University Crescent earlier this year.

Detectives are aware of five incidents that took place between January 2019 and May 2019. During each incident, it is believed the suspect retrieved clothing from unsecured lockers within a community change room area and deposited his seminal fluid on the clothing before returning it to the locker. The clothing belonged to children ranging between the ages of five and eleven.

With the assistance of the University of Manitoba’s Security Services Department, a suspect was identified. The Child Abuse Unit continued with the investigation and utilized DNA testing to further establish the identity of the suspect.

On July 27, 2019, the suspect, who is a student at the University of Manitoba, was placed under arrest.

Christopher Simba Yannick Buckeridge, a 22-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with:

- Mischief Under $5,000/Obstruct in Enjoyment (x5)
- Theft Under $5,000 (x5)

He was initially detained in custody, but has since been released on a Recognizance.
