A Landmark man, who was first charged with sexual assault in May 2017, now faces a slew of additional charges after a further police investigation.
Steinbach RCMP began an investigation into Elgin Brent Penner after charging him on June 1, 2017, for failing to comply with an undertaking related to his alleged offence that May.
The 28-year-old man, who police said is also known as Radek, has now been charged with more than 20 additional charges including four sexual assault charges, five sexual interference charges, two charges of sexual invitation to touching, luring a minor, two counts of indecent exposure, a making of child pornography charge, indecent phone charges, two marijuana trafficking charges, and counts two uttering threats.
Penner was released from custody on Wednesday on what police called "stringent conditions." He is now on an absolute curfew and cannot leave his home unless in the company of his parents. He is also prohibited from being alone with anyone under the age of 18.
Police said their investigation continues and further charges will be laid. In a press release, RCMP added that they believe there are additional victims and have asked anyone with information to contact Steinbach RCMP at 204-326-4452.
Penner will appear in court on April 5 on most of the charges. His drug related charges are scheduled for an April 28 court appearance.
