They say DiManno, 60, and the alleged victim were visiting Wollaston when an assault occurred. They have released no details about the alleged victim.

DiManno is scheduled to appear in court on July 26.

The news broke shortly after Canada's largest newspaper said it had agreed to an independent review of its newsroom culture in the aftermath of the suicide of a prominent reporter.
