In August of 2020, members of the Winnipeg Police Service Child Abuse Unit became involved in an investigation into allegations of historical, multi-generational sexual assaults that had occurred in Winnipeg. The assaults were alleged to happened between January 1995 and December 2015, occurring primarily at a residence located in the city.
The two initial reports were made to a police agency outside of the province, who forwarded the case to WPS investigators as the offences occurred in Winnipeg, where the suspect still resides.
Presently, five victims have been interviewed, forming the basis of the charges. An additional three victims have been identified through the course of the investigation.
On September 10, detectives arrested a 47-year-old suspect:
Alan Oloya SAMSON has been charged with 25 offences, including;
- Sexual Assault
- Sexual Interference
- Make Child Pornography
- Possess Child Pornography
- Invitation to Sexual Touching
Samson was detained in custody.
Investigators continue to interview potential victims. Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is asked to call either 204-986-3296 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
