Kamloops man charged with sexual assault and the RCMP believes there are more victims

A Kamloops man of no fixed address has been arrested and charged with sexual assault.

The RCMP believes that there may be more victims or witnesses who have yet to come forward, which is why they’re releasing 24-year-old Cody Joseph’s photo.

Joseph is in custody after an incident that happened early Sunday morning.

A woman told police that she was parked at Riverside Park when a stranger, now identified as Joseph, approached her.

The man told her that he had been seriously injured and needed a ride, so the woman obliged.

She says she was sexually assaulted during the drive.

After alerting the RCMP, officers quickly converged on the area that Joseph was dropped off in and arrested him.

“Although police cannot go into specifics at this time due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, it is believed there may be more victims and witnesses who have yet to come forward,” said Cst. Crystal Evelyn.

“We urge any witnesses or victims to please contact Kamloops RCMP.”

Anyone who has been a victim or has further information that can helped investigators is urged to call 250-828-3000.
