Updated 12:02 p.m Thursday: The Northwest Territories RCMP have located a man with outstanding warrants for arrest following the alleged sexual assault and forcible confinement of a person earlier this week.

Police are not disclosing the area and date of the incident ‘for the protection of the victim’.

Shortly after releasing a request for assistance from the public in locating 48-year-old Peter Tsetta, police say they found a lead and located Tsetta.

He is scheduled to appear in court in the next couple of days.
