A suspended Richmond RCMP officer has been charged with 34 counts of voyeurism and three counts of sexual assault involving six women known to him.

Andrew Seangio was suspended in B.C. for previous allegations of indecent acts and voyeurism in a separate investigation in March.

The 35-year-old man turned himself in to police in Vancouver on Thursday morning.

According to the Ottawa Police Service (OPS), the alleged offences in Ottawa occurred between 2011 and 2018 while he was living in that city.

The OPS say there may be more victims and are asking “any women who were present in Mr. Seangio’s residence in the south end of Ottawa, between October 2015 and October 2017,” to contact them.

“The Ottawa Police will respect a victim’s wishes to pursue or not pursue the matter before the courts,” said the OPS in a statement.

In March, the Richmond News reported that the Richmond RCMP had launched an internal code of conduct investigation where Seangio was suspended and charged for indecent acts that allegedly happened near a school in Vancouver in February 2019 while he was off duty.
