Vancouver Island police probe alleged sex assault of teen in Saanich corn maze

  Vancouver Island police probe alleged sex assault of teen in Saanich corn maze SAANICH, B.C. — Police on Vancouver Island are investigating a report that a teenager was sexually assaulted while visiting a corn maze in Saanich. A statement from Saanich police says the 16-year-old was with her mother exploring the maze on Oct. 25, when she reported hearing comments from a group of 13-year-old boys before she was "touched from behind in a sexual manner." Investigators call the incident "brazen," saying it occurred even though the victim was walking with a parent at the time.They say the 16-year-old and her mother identified the group of boys but couldn't pick out a specific suspect because the maze was busy at the time.

A Calgary police officer has been fired after he tried to start an unwanted and " predatory " relationship with a young woman who had just tried to kill herself, sending her up to a hundred text messages in four days while she lay recovering in hospital and dropping by her home uninvited.

' Predatory ' police officer fired after sending suicidal woman up to 100 texts in 4 days | CBC News. PARRY SOUND — The police officer charged with drunk driving at Wasauksing First Nation pleaded guilty to dangerous driving on his first court appearance.

A Calgary police officer facing an unrelated assault charge has been fired from the service for discreditable conduct for a "predatory" relationship he tried to initiate with an "extremely vulnerable" young woman who had just tried to kill herself.

CBC News has obtained a copy of the decision by retired Calgary Police Service superintendent Paul Manuel to fire Const. Dave Pizzolato. Pizzolato is only the third officer in more than two decades to be terminated from CPS.

The decision, which came after a CPS disciplinary hearing in September, describes Pizzolato's conduct as "reprehensible" as well as "predatory and exploitive."

Pizzolato — a 22-year veteran of the force — was terminated by the CPS last week, although he has 30 days to appeal.

In September, Pizzolato pleaded guilty to discreditable conduct and insubordination before the hearing.

The victim

The young woman at the centre of the case was referred to in the decision as "Ms. M."

She is a sexual assault survivor who was also a victim of human trafficking. She operates at the level of someone between the ages of 14 and 16 and was victimized for most of her childhood, the document states.

In 2016, she tried to kill herself and a friend called 911. Pizzolato responded.

The woman was 22 at the time and Pizzolato was 48.

The woman was taken to hospital, where she spent several days.

Over the four days, M was in hospital, Pizzolato sent her 75 to 100 text messages from his personal cellphone, calling her "hon," "sweety" and "sweetness."

'Suggestive, inappropriate' texts

Hours after she tried to kill herself, Pizzolato wrote, "I would really love to see you again…. I feel your pain! I really do!"

The texts were "too familiar, too suggestive, inappropriate, unsolicited, unwanted and wholly unprofessional," wrote Manuel.

M showed the messages to hospital staff who were so concerned that they contacted the police force.

At one point over the four days she was in hospital, M sent a message back to Pizzolato in an effort to get him to stop.

"BTW, my mentor from the Boys and Girls club saw my texts with you and thought I should make it clear that I'm only interested in the resources," wrote M. "I hope that you weren't interpreting this differently."

Yet, Pizzolato continued to message.

5-Year-Old Boy Really Wanted a McDonald's Happy Meal — So He Called 911

  5-Year-Old Boy Really Wanted a McDonald's Happy Meal — So He Called 911 An officer arrived at the home and Charlie was in for a big treat. One little boy in Arizona thought he had a super-sized problem and called 911 about it. Charlie Skabelund, 5, really wanted a happy meal, so he phoned in his order to the police. As the officer asked what the emergency was, the child ordered a Happy Meal. “We were completely surprised and a little embarrassed,” his mom told Inside Edition. Charlie's parents, Kim and Randy, were stunned when police called them to report Charlie’s 911 call.

Guys only really mess up the follow- up text when they text too much, rather than too soon. When you initiate a conversation every single day for days on end after a nice date, you’re not reminding them of the fun you had go-karting, you’re giving them a new chore: responding to your texts .

She later told investigators she felt pressured to go with him and "scared about what he might do to her" if she didn't.

The woman told police said she didn't feel safe and didn't know what to do.

The two parked with their ice creams and Pizzolato told her about his ex-wife. He said she could take a ride with him on her motorcycle one day.

He touched her on the arm and put his hand on her leg.

'I was scared'

She said the conversation made her feel "creepy."

"I was confused because sometimes he acted like a police officer and sometimes he acted like he wanted to date me," M told investigators.

"I was scared and didn't feel safe and didn't know what to do."

Hospital staff found out about Pizzolato's visit and contacted CPS to have an officer check on the woman.

When Pizzolato returned to the woman's apartment to drop her off, he spotted the marked patrol car and let her out at the side of her building.

The officer's conduct was even more egregious because he'd done the same thing with other women he met on-duty and just two weeks earlier, his staff sergeant warned him to stop.

Pizzolato faces assault charge

Pizzolato also had a history of bungling investigations.

In 2014, he labelled a file involving an 11-year-old sexual assault victim "inactive." Twice, he was told to do more work on the case but he kept closing the file. Eventually, it was handed over to another officer.

In April 2016, Pizzolato failed to properly investigate a car prowling/vandalism complaint, which Manuel called "a [sheer] neglect of duty."

The CPS disciplined him for both incidents.

Manuel wrote that Pizzolato was a good "reactive police officer" when he was responding to calls "where there is little to no investigation or followup required."

Pizzolato also faces allegations of criminal wrongdoing.

Last year, he was charged with assault after the arrest of a man in downtown Calgary in 2016.

A trial took place last month with a judge set to deliver a decision in December.

'My judgment was askew by my caring for her'

The officer's lawyer, Greg Dunn, argued his client crossed a line, acted inappropriately and showed a "lack of self-restraint," but said Pizzolato "wears his heart on his sleeve."

"I honestly thought that I was the only person that was going to make a difference in her life," Pizzolato said at the hearing.

"My judgment was askew by my caring for her and having a bond with her that I felt."

Ultimately, though, Manuel found Pizzolato's actions "clearly demonstrate that he is not suitable to hold the office of police officer."

"In society, police officers are held to a higher standard. Police officers are professionals; people who are honest and trustworthy and of the highest moral standards. They are expected to be leaders in our community and to set an example. Constable Pizzolato has broken this public trust and when one police officer breaks that trust, it is left to all police officers and the police service to earn that trust back.

"His usefulness as an employee of the service has been annulled."

Dunn confirmed Pizzolato will appeal the decision.
