Maple Ridge, B.C. – A Ridge Meadows man, 57-year-old Richard Richardson has been charged with committing a sexual assault on another male.
The act allegedly took place at Richardson’s home, where the 40 year old victim had been renting out a room.
“Mr. Richardson is well known to members of Ridge Meadows RCMP”, said Corporal Dale Somerville, the RCMP’s media spokesperson. “Richardson has a criminal record for sexual assault against a young male, from a file back in the early 1990s.”
