A Williams Lake area man faces seven charges, including forcible confinement and sexual assault.

In April a Smithers RCMP investigation into an incident of forcible confinement in a vehicle against 24-year-old commercial truck driver Robert Fagg resulted in several more victims being identified in the Williams Lake area over alleged incidents spanning from 2007 to 2012.

On April 8, Fagg was arrested by the Smithers RCMP and charged with several violent offences, including forcible confinement and assault after his victim escaped from the semi-truck where she was being held by Fagg.

As a result of the Smithers RCMP investigation, the North District R/GIS unit began an investigation into Fagg’s activities and former relationships in the Williams Lake area after receiving information from other possible victims.

On July 22, members of the North District Regional General Investigation Section travelled to Quesnel to arrest Fagg.

As a result of the RCMP investigation, a report was forwarded to Provincial Crown Counsel who approved seven new charges against Fagg.

The offences took place over a five-year period from 2007 to 2012 and involved three different female victims who had been in a relationship with Fagg.

Fagg faces the following charges: one count of break-and-enter, one count of forcible confinement, two counts of sexual assault and three counts of assault.

Fagg appeared in court in Williams Lake on July 23 and was remanded into custody until his next scheduled court appearance of July 31, also in Williams Lake.
