UPDATE: Yarmouth man charged with assault ordered not to be around young people and to abide by curfew
Kevin Gerald Shaun Clayton, 24, has been charged with assault following an alleged confrontation with a 13-year-old girl who was walking her dog on Parade Street the evening of Sept. 19.
According to the RCMP, a man made small talk and invited the girl to his home. The RCMP say the girl refused and the man then grabbed her by the wrist and attempted to pull her. The girl kicked him in the leg and ran from the area. This occurred around 7:40 p.m. The RCMP were called and an investigation began immediately.
Upon further investigation, police located a 14-year-old girl who had similar experiences in the past two weeks with possibly the same man. No charge has been laid in that incident.
The RCMP made an appeal to the community for assistance to help identify this man. As a result, Yarmouth Town RCMP identified, located and arrested a 24-year-old Yarmouth man the evening of Sept. 20 and charged him with assault in connection with the Sept. 19 incident.
Clayton appeared in Yarmouth provincial court on Sept. 21. He was released on an undertaking with consent. He is due back in court on Oct. 25.
A publication ban is in place with the court to protect the identity of the young teenage girl.
Clayton must abide by a seven-day-a-week curfew ordering him to remain in his residence from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. The court says telephone calls to the residence and in-person checks by the RCMP will be used…
