Police say a man charged with sexually assaulting three teenage girls has been re-arrested after breaking his court conditions.
"It's concerning to us that this individual continues this type of behaviour," says Constable Jason Michalyshen of the Winnipeg Police Service.
The 30-year-old was arrested at St. Vital Centre on Sunday. Officers say the man was arrested while talking to two 13-year-old girls. Police say he was to have no contact with anyone under 18-years-old.
Police say on May 31, a man started touching a 15 year old girl while on a transit bus. She got away only later realizing her cell phone was missing.
A few days later the girl says the man approached her at St. Vital Centre promising to give her the phone if she went back with him to his house.
Two other teen girls were sexually assaulted by the man on June 4, say police.
CTV News spoke with one of the parents of the alleged victims; he says, what happened to his daughter and the fact the man was released then caught two days later is completely unnerving.
The man is now in custody and is due in court Wednesday morning. Police say officers are looking into the possibility of other victims.
Huu Nhut Le has been charged with failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking. His previous charges included: three counts of sexual assault, uttering threats to cause death of bodily harm and theft under $5,000.
