According to Edmonton Police Service, the incidents took place between April and June of 2020.

“In each case, it was reported that the male approached the female complainants and broke eggs on their heads, and in some cases, he would grope the complainant,” said a release from EPS.

“In one occurrence, it was reported that the male was wearing what appeared to be rubber breasts over his clothing.”

Schartner has been charged with six counts of sexual assault with a weapon, six counts of unauthorized possession of a restricted firearm, and unlawful possession of body armour.
