His name has not been released because police say charges have not yet been approved.

The arrest follows a lengthy sexual misconduct investigation into alleged incidents near York House school on Vancouver's west side.

Dawn Roberts, an RCMP spokeswoman, confirms in a statement that the suspect is a Mountie.

Roberts says the officer is suspended with pay and an internal code of conduct investigation has been launched. (CTV)
