A Headingley man is facing serious charges after he allegedly published graphic images of someone to the internet without their permission.
The Winnipeg Police Service says that they were contacted in April of this year about "intimate images posted online without consent in 2015."
The Domestic Violence Unit took charge of the investigation, which police claim "revealed a number of nude images of the reporting victim and other unknown women were posted online by the suspect."
Police say it is their belief that none of the women pictured had given the individual consent to post them online. They also believe there could be more victims.
David Alexander Zegarac, 43, of Headingley was charged on May 14 with publication of an intimate image without consent. The WPS is now asking for others with information to come forward to assist police in the ongoing investigation.
The WPS says that anyone with information to assist police or who wishes to speak to investigators is asked to call the Domestic Violence Unit at 204-986-2602. Other supportive resources include WPS Victim Services at 204-986-6350 or Klinic Sexual Assault Crisis Line at 204-786-8631.
Zegarac was charged with a number of offences in February after he was accused of being behind the wheel of an SUV that plowed through a group of protesters on Broadway on February 4, 2022. One person was taken to hospital and three other were treated for minor injuries on the scene.
Following the incident, many people took to the internet to post accounts of alleged predatory behaviour on his part.
Const. Rob Carver, a spokesperson for the WPS, said in the winter that before the protest incident Zegarac had been unknown to police.
None of the charges in either incident have been proven in court.
