An Abbotsford man previously charged with sexual assault has been charged with breaching his bail conditions.

An Abbotsford man who was arrested in July for an alleged sexual assault was recently charged with breaching his bail conditions.

Amrik Singh Kular, 43, has had the breach charge added to his two previous charges of sexual assault and committing an indecent act.

Police would not reveal the specifics of Kular’s alleged breach, other than saying it was not sexual in nature.

Typical conditions that people must abide by after being released on bail include keeping the peace and abstaining from alcohol and drugs. Not following those conditions can result in a breach charge.

Kular was arrested after the breach and was released on $1,000 bail.

He was previously arrested and charged after an incident on the afternoon of July 26 in which an 18-year-old girl contacted the Abbotsford Police Department.

She reported that she had been waiting at a bus stop in the 2400 block of Montrose Avenue when she was grabbed by a man.

She said the man wrapped his arms around her from the front and wouldn’t let go.

The girl was able to free herself, and the man then moved a short distance away and appeared to be exposing and touching himself, according to police.

The man was located and arrested a short distance away.

Kular was charged two days later and was released on $1,500 bail under conditions that include not being alone with anyone under the age of 16 and not attending parks and other places where children under 16 are expected to be.

He is next scheduled to appear Oct. 16 in Abbotsford provincial court on all three charges.
