WINNIPEG – We are learning more about Irvine Fraser, the man murdered while doing his job Tuesday morning as a Winnipeg Transit operator.
Court documents obtained by Global News go into graphic details about alleged sexual assault that Fraser was accused of committing between 1982 and 1991.
Testimony from the victim says it happened over a number of years, starting when she was just five years old.
Fraser was arrested in 2013 and charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of sexual interference.
The victim, who is now an adult, spoke of years of alleged sexual abuse in graphic, disturbing detail. She claimed she was repeatedly touched and molested until she was 12. These accusations were denied by Fraser.
A trial was slated to begin this past November, but Fraser did not show up for jury selection in October and a warrant was put out for his arrest.
He turned himself in shortly thereafter and was released after posting bail. A new trial was set for January 2018.
None of the allegations were proven in court.
Global News has asked the city why Fraser was still on the job with these charges pending, but so far have not returned our calls.
