WINNIPEG - A Winnipeg city councillor has been charged with sexual assaulting a woman six months ago.

Russ Wyatt, 48, was arrested Tuesday after lab results came back, and has been released pending a future court date, a city police spokesman said.

Const. Rob Carver would not reveal details of the allegations on Wednesday, other than to say the alleged crime is a "serious sexual assault" that occurred in a home that was not Wyatt's on Jan. 14.

The alleged victim is a woman known to Wyatt, but who is not his wife, and is not believed to be a city employee, Carver added.

Wyatt was interviewed in January and the charge is only being laid now because of standard investigative procedures, he said.

A longtime Winnipeg city councillor has been arrested and charged with a serious sexual assault . Global News has learned Russ Wyatt was arrested Tuesday night and later released. Wyatt has since denied the allegations.

Rob Carver says Wyatt is charged with committing a serious sexual assault against an adult woman on Jan. Wyatt took a leave of absence from city council early this year, and entered a rehab program for substance abuse in March.

"Witnesses are interviewed and then suspects are interviewed," Carver said.

"The delay in sexual assault charges is almost always based on getting lab results back ... and it takes a long time."

Wyatt said he is innocent.

"I have no comment to make regarding the allegation against me other than to say that I am innocent of any wrongdoing," he said in an email.

"I will defend myself in a court of law and will only respond further to the allegation in a court room."

Wyatt took a leave of absence from city council in January and revealed in March that he had entered a rehab program for substance abuse. He returned to council in May.

In June, he told media he was not ruling out running for mayor in the municipal election slated for October.

Under the city's charter, councillors are only removed from office for criminal offences after a conviction.

Mayor Brian Bowman said he was shocked to learn of the charge.

"At no time until today did I learn that there was a criminal investigation that was ongoing," Bowman said Wednesday.

The charge facing Wyatt is very serious, he added.

"This matter is now before a court of law. There is an independent process and we'll obviously respect that process going forward," he said.

"My immediate thoughts, as we learn that there is an alleged victim, is to think about her."
