On Wednesday afternoon, after losing her way in the woods, a Vanier Catholic Secondary School student was touched sexually.

The 14-year-old girl was participating in a school athletic event when she lost the trail.

Searching for the route in a wooded area behind FH Collins Secondary School, she asked three young men for directions.

The men followed the student and one touched her in a sexually inappropriate manner.

After ordering the man to stop, the girl fled.

The student was not physically harmed.

She immediately reported the incident to school officials.

The three young men were approximately 18 years old, were wearing black and were First Nations.

One of the suspects was overweight, had a black eye and was wearing a black ball cap.

The individual who touched the female had long hair.

Anyone with more information should call the RCMP at 667-5555.

Home intruder charged

At noon on Tuesday, a man entered a Watson Lake house and threatened a female resident.

After being confronted by a male resident who was also at home, the intruder took off.

The intruder and the residents did not know each other.

No one was injured.

Police identified and located the man without incident.

Dwayne Gregory Dennis, age 43, was charged with break and enter, and assault with a weapon.

Alcohol is thought to be a factor in the incident. (GK)
