The Vancouver Police Department has charged a man with several sexual assaults against young female victims including several incidents in Burnaby.

Martin Tremblay has been charged sexual assault and administering a noxious substance in connection with three separate incidents allegedly involving a 15 year old girl in Burnaby in 2005, a 14 year old girl in Vancouver between February and August 2007 and a 19-year-old woman in Burnaby between September 2005 and May 2007.

He has also been charged with obtaining sexual services for money from a person under the age of 18 years in connection with an incident allegedly involving a 16 year old girl in Burnaby in 2006.

Tremblay was first arrested last February on drug charges, said VPD Insp. Brad Desmarais in a statement. At the time, VPD appealed to victims to come forward while he was in custody as it pursued allegations in the Downtown Eastside community regarding the sexual assaults.

The public appeal resulted the seven new charges.

Tremblay was arrested on the new charges on Sept. 27 just after he was released from the Ford Mountain Correctional Centre. He was arrested by RCMP at a bus depot in Chilliwack as he was about to get on a bus to return to Vancouver.

He was remanded on the new charges and was to appear in court on Monday, Oct. 3.
