IQALUIT, Nunavut – A Mountie in Nunavut with 30-plus years of service has been charged in alleged assaults on two prisoners at the Pond Inlet detachment.

Sgt. Paul Marenchuk faces two counts of assault with a weapon in August and September of last year.

RCMP say Marenchuk, who has been in Pond Inlet since 2012, has been suspended with pay.

They say an internal review was subsequently referred to an RCMP investigator from Alberta.

The results were submitted to the Public Prosecution Services of Canada and charges were recommended.

Marenchuk is to appear in Pond Inlet territorial court on July 19.

An internal code-of-conduct investigation has also been directed by the RCMP.
