Charges have now been laid after a lengthy sexual assault investigation in Armstrong.
Forty-five year old Joseph Vance Caron of Armstrong has been charged with sexual assault, unlawful confinement, uttering threats and attempt to choke while committing a sexual offence.
The sex assault took place near the end of May, but according to Gord Molendyk of the Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP, the investigation that followed required forensic evidence to assist in the identification of their suspect.
Court records show that Caron spent time in jail following a previous sexual assault in 2010.
He has been remanded into custody and will appear in court on July 30.
