Toronto Police announced that Jacob Hoggard, the front man of Hedley had been arrested and charged with sexual assault.
The release claims that the arrest is connected to incidents which took place in 2016. Hoggard allegedly met three women separately and ‘committed a sexual assault on each of them.’
The police announced that a joint investigation with Peel Regional Police led to Hoggard, a 34-year-old Vancouver resident, facing one count of sexual interference and two counts of assault causing bodily harm.
Hoggard is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday at 2pm.
The police said they remain ‘concerned there may be other victims.’ They ask anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-7474. To leave an anonymous tip, go online, or call 416-222-TIPS (8477).
Several other sexual assault allegations were made against Hedley earlier in the year. In response, the band announced indefinite hiatus and police confirmed that an investigation was being conducted.
