The RCMP are conducting an investigation into a former RCMP officer after announcing last week that the suspect is facing multiple charges of sexual assault.

The “G” Division RCMP major crimes unit is looking into a historical case against former Sgt. Colin Roy Allooloo, who has been charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation under the Criminal Code. They are being assisted by the “E” Division RCMP interview team.

At this point it is unknown exactly where or when the crime in question occurred. RCMP are not giving any details on the case at this time as the matter is headed to court later this year.

This is not Allooloo’s first infraction.

Five years ago he was found guilty of assaulting a youth in custody after firing pepper-spray at a 16 year-old male while stationed in Fort Simpson in 2006. The teen was in a holding cell at the time.

Allooloo was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest and was banned from possessing firearms for a period of 10 years, a mandatory sentencing for those convicted of assault. He was also suspended with pay by the RCMP upon sentencing, remaining so as he appealed the case in 2010.

Eventually the sentence was adjusted to allow him to carry firearms for the purpose of traditional hunting, but not to carry out his police work.

Allooloo resigned from his position with the RCMP in Oct. 2010, about three months after the conviction, ending a 12-year career with the force.

Before that, Allooloo had two separate complaints of criminal assault filed against him based on incidents in Iqaluit and Behchoko in 1999, though both cases were thrown out.

Allooloo will attend his next court appearance on Dec. 1 for his most recent charges.
