Man pleads guilty in historic sexual assaults

By Tara Clow Apr 4, 2024 | 10:53 AM

A man from Edmundston, who was living in Moncton, has pleaded guilty to several sexual assaults in New Brunswick that date back at least 10 years.

RCMP say they first received a report in June 2023 about an alleged sexual assault in Greater Moncton that happened around 10 years ago.

The victim was allegedly rendered unconscious with a noxious substance before being assaulted.

Officers searched two locations in the Greater Moncton region and a 36-year-old man was arrested.

Additional victims were identified in the Greater Moncton and Edmundston areas in other alleged incidents between 2010 and 2023. RCMP say the man was also employed in Alberta, and they believe there could be victims in that province as well.

Jonathan Luc Beaulieu pleaded guilty last month to the following charges:

  • Three counts of sexual assault with a weapon
  • Two counts of sexual assault
  • Two counts of voyeurism
  • Two counts of distributing intimate images
  • Overcoming resistance
  • Administering a noxious substance
  • Assault

He remains in custody and will be sentenced on May 28.

“This is still an active investigation,” says Sgt. Sylvette Hebert with the Codiac Regional RCMP. “There could be other potential victims and it would be important for them to have the courage to contact police for us to speak with them or anyone else with information relevant to this investigation.”
