A 27-year-old Moncton man has been charged with a number of offences in connection with a complaint of sexual assault of a person under the age of 16.

The Codiac Regional RCMP were contacted on February 24th and say the assault was alleged to have occurred between September 2016 and January 2018.

Dillon Turpin was arrested at a home in Moncton on February 28th and held in custody.

He appeared in Moncton Provincial Court the following day and charged with nine offences, including sexual assault, sexual interference, possession of and making child pornography, and two counts of uttering threats.

There is a court-imposed publication ban on any information that could identify the victim.

Turpin was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court on March 6 for a bail hearing.
