A teacher at Etoile de l’Acadie in Sydney has been suspended from his position after being charged with sexual assault.

Michel Joseph Aubin Vienneau, 43, of Howie Centre, was arrested without incident Sunday after a 32-year-old woman complained to police she was sexually assaulted by the math and science teacher.

He is also charged with assault and unlawful confinement.

The incident is alleged to have occurred at the school at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. A spokespeson for the Conseil Scolaire Acadien Provincial told reporters yesterday no students were involved in the case. Police have said while both Vienneau and the alleged victim knew each other, they were not involved in any relationship.
