In 2020 the Winnipeg Police Counter-Exploitation Unit charged a B.C. man with sexually assaulting a minor and those charges have recently stayed.

Initially, the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) worked with the RCMP in B.C. on this investigation. On July 22, 2020 the WPS issued a search warrant at Radouene Bentroudi's home.

Bentroudi was charged with luring a person under 16, sexual assault, sexual interference, and obtaining sexual services from a person under 18 years of age.

A 13-year-old girl from Winnipeg told police during the investigation that Bentroudi came to Winnipeg on a work trip and it was then he sexually assaulted her.

According to Richmond News in B.C., a spokesperson with Manitoba Courts confirmed that the Crown prosecutor has advised the court of a stay of proceedings for the charges and that no trial was held.

The Manitoba Courts spokesperson added that the Crown determined that there was "no reasonable likelihood of conviction."
