Mounties say they believe the incident was isolated, unrelated to Berar's employment as a police officer, and involved persons known to each other.

Vancouver police Sgt. Steve Addison confirmed Berar is still with the department, but says the officer is not on active duty.

Squamish RCMP say they believe the alleged assault occurred a few days before the detachment received a complaint on July 19.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 15, 2019.
