Quebec City police (SPVQ) have arrested seven people accused of committing several sex-related crimes, including those related to sexual contact with a minor and child pornography.
The Wednesday arrests are a result of an investigation that began in 2021 following a tip.
The alleged crimes, which police say date back to 2020 and 2021, include sexual assault, sexual contact with a person under 16 years of age, production, possession and distribution of child pornography, among others.
The SPVQ says the suspects were interviewed by investigators and have all been released on a promise to appear.
As the investigation continues, more arrests could follow, police say.
