RCMP, New Westminister BC police seek suspects in HIV infection cases

The RCMP and local authorities are seeking two men who they suspect have had sexual contact with women without revealing their HIV+ status. On May 19, 2010, Mounties charged Adam Rollo with aggravated assault on a woman for sexual contact with a woman despite knowing he had been HIV positive since 2003. Corporal Peter DeVries has the following to say about Rollo.

 Since the North Vancouver RCMP last notified the public, four additional women have come forward and provided enough evidence for investigators to recommend four more charges of aggravated assault against Mr. Rollo. Police are awaiting crown counsel’s response to the recommendations. Mr. Rollo is currently under court imposed conditions that require him to disclose to any potential partners the fact that he carries the HIV virus. Investigators want talk to all potential victims and witnesses in this case.

New Westminster Police have issued an arrest warrant for a 38 year old man who they fear has traveled to Eastern Canada to have sex with more unsuspecting women without disclosing his HIV+ status. Bongani Nyoni is accused of having sex with 3 women while concealing his status.

 New Westminster Crown Counsel has issued a Canada wide warrant for Nyoni’s arrest as it is believed he may have travelled to eastern Canada. The offences date back to May of 2006 and investigators are concerned that Nyoni may continue to engage in intimate relations with females without disclosing his medical condition.

The contact person for the Adam Rollo case is Corporal Doug Trousdell of the North Vancouver RCMP who is handling the file. You can call him at 604-990-7491. Refer to file 2010-13171.
