Nygard Charged by Winnipeg Police

Tuesday, July 11, 2023 - Winnipeg Police have arrested and charged disgraced fashion billionaire, Peter Nygard in relation to a sexual assault.

Police said the incident of a then 20-year-old survivor on or about November 18, 1993, happened at the Nygard Corporate headquarters located at 1340 Notre Dame Avenue.

Last December, the matter was forwarded to Saskatchewan Justice for an independent review at the direction of the Manitoba Justice Minister.

On July 10, 2023, after reviewing the opinion from Saskatchewan Justice, the Winnipeg Police Service obtained an arrest warrant for Sexual Assault and Unlawful Confinement for the accused, 81-year-old Peter John Nygard.

On July 11, 2023, the Winnipeg Police Service’s Sex Crimes Unit, with the assistance of the Toronto Police Service Human Trafficking Enforcement Team, arrested Nygard on the strength of the warrant at the Toronto South Detention Centre, where he remains in custody.

The Winnipeg Police Service would like to thank Manitoba Justice, the Government of Saskatchewan Public Prosecutions, and the Toronto Police Service for their assistance.

The Winnipeg Police Service will not provide additional information or comment as this matter is before the courts.
