An instructor at the University of Winnipeg Collegiate has been charged after two former high school students came forward alleging they were sexually assaulted.
Winnipeg police say both victims were 16 and 18 at the time when the offences occurred between 2016 and 2018. The accused formed an inappropriate teacher/student relationship with both girls, police say.
Officers began investigating in January 2019 and issued an arrest warrant in June.
Ishmael Mustapha, 46, was arrested on Wednesday upon returning to Winnipeg from abroad. He has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of sexual exploitation.
He has since been released on a promise to appear.
Mustapha was listed as an active instructor on the University of Winnipeg website until midday on Friday.
