On April 25, Maple Creek RCMP received a report of a historic sexual assault.
Investigation determined an adult male sexually assaulted a male youth during a sport-related trip during the early 2000s.
On April 26, 64-year-old Dexter Bacsu from Maple Creek was arrested and charged with one count of sexual assault, Section 271, Criminal Code and one count of sexual interference, Section 151, Criminal Code.
He made his first appearance in Swift Current Provincial Court on April 26 (Information #90458683).
The investigation continues and Maple Creek RCMP believe there may be more victims. Because it may be relevant to other potential incidents, investigators are releasing details of the accused’s career and volunteer history. Dexter Bacsu was a long-time teacher in Maple Creek schools and continued to work as a substitute teacher until recently. Chinook School Division has advised he is no longer an employee. Dexter Bacsu volunteers in local youth sports and music programming, including as a coach and trip chaperone.
