Two new sex assault charges against Ottawa yoga teacher

An appetite for spooky in the capital
An Ottawa yoga teacher was to appear in court Thursday on two new charges of sexual assault, after two new alleged victims came forward.

Police said the new accusers came forward after news was released that instructor Matthew Harper, 38, had been charged in relation to an incident with one of his students on Nov. 8, 2015.

The woman said she believed she had been sexually assaulted and two of three alleged incidents happened while the man was teaching yoga in the city.

He was released on a promise to appear in court.

The latest victims allege incidents that occurred between Feb. 1, 2015 and Oct. 18, 2015 when the suspect was a yoga instructor in the city of Ottawa.

Investigators are concerned there could be other victims.  (more...)
