A Summerland man was arrested in Osoyoos on Sunday, and is facing charges of sexual assault and forcible confinement.
The Penticton RCMP arrested the man following the report of the alleged forcible confinement and sexual assault of a woman in Penticton.
On Sunday, the Penticton RCMP were contacted by a 22-year-old female who alleged that she had been forcibly confined the previous evening at a private residence and during this time had been assaulted, sexually assault and threatened.
Efforts to locate the male involved neighbouring detachments with RCMP officers locating the suspect a short time later in Osoyoos. The man was arrested without incident.
Penticton RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the incident was not a random incident and the accused and victim knew each other.
On Monday, 23-year-old Aaron Motz of Summerland was charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault, assault and uttering threats in relation to this incident. Motz made his first appearance in court and has been remanded into custody until his next court date.
