Novid Dadmand Charged With Sex Assault, Posing As Modelling Agent

RICHMOND, B.C. - A British Columbia man is facing 11 charges related to sexual assault, break and enter, theft and fraud.

Mounties in Richmond, B.C., said in a written release that the alleged crimes of 28-year-old Novid Dadmand date back to 2008 and span the four Metro Vancouver jurisdictions of Richmond, North Vancouver, Surrey and Burnaby.
