(FORT FRANCES, ON) – Hardworking officers with the Treaty Three Police Service (T3PS) located in the Fort Frances detachment have made an arrest regarding a child under 10 years of age being sexually assaulted. Numerous other crimes were also connected to the same suspect including a number of assaults with a weapon, break and enters, assault with intent to steal and various other crimes listed below.
Allegations are that a child was forcibly confined, sexually touched and sexually assaulted. 28-year-old Kevin Carl Tuesday Junior was arrested, charged, and held in police custody pending a court appearance. That court appearance took place this morning at the Thunder Bay Courthouse.
Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with a Crown Attorney that I have not been able to identify yet and criminal defence lawyer Aranka Golphy who was fulfilling the role of duty counsel.
Tuesday had three active warrants for his arrest for some time. The charges he is facing are listed below:
- Sexual assault.
- Sexual interference of a child.
- Touching for a sexual purpose.
- Forcible confinement.
- Failure to comply with bail conditions x4.
- Mischief x4.

Tuesday was not granted release from police custody today. He is headed to the Fort Frances jail where he will likely sit until at least his next scheduled appearance in a Fort Frances courtroom on Monday, December 16th, 2019.
None of these charges have been proven in a court of law.
