Kordek allegedly placed her into his vehicle and tried to sexually assault her.

Asst. Chief Garcia said in a statement, "Edinburg Police Investigators believe this may not have been the first time Melquisedec Chan has committed this type of crime and are urging any other people who may have been victimized by Melquisedec Chan to file a report with their local police department".

The court, which held the man guilty of the offence of sexual assault under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, is yet to pronounce the quantum of punishment. That information will be entered into a national database that tracks violent offenders, even though it will not be treated the same as a formal complaint to police.

The woman was grabbed from behind by a man and assaulted at about 3 a.m. said Waterloo Regional Police.

The woman was said to have been taken to a house nearby and sexually assaulted. From there, police would then be able to do a formal investigation, Smyth said. Anyone named in the reports won't be interviewed by police.

"We know historically that women have faced incredible barriers when they have shared their story and sought out prosecution, so we are just providing tools and support for women through third-party reporting", said Manitoba's Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Rochelle Squires at the announcement Monday.

A case regarding this was registered at the Shankaranarayana police station.

Police said Manitoba RCMP is also working with community groups who provide victims' services to bring rural Manitobans the option of third party reporting.
