‘Hockey player’ named as ‘abusive’ sex offender in Kelowna court case – Penticton Western News

Kole Comin was named as the “abusive” assailant by the victim in a sexual assault and forcible confinement trial taking place Thursday in Kelowna Supreme Court.

Comin is one of four men facing charges of sexual assault and forcible confinement stemming from an alleged 2018 incident in West Kelowna.

The victim identified Comin as “hockey player two” during the fourth day of the four-week trial. The brothers Christian and David Dupas as well as Trevor Pereverzoff are the three other men charged in the case. They are also referred to as hockey players by the victim as well as a witness RCMP officer, although not all of the men play hockey as the victim did not know their names at the time of the alleged incident.

During Thursday’s proceedings, a recording of the victim impact statement, identifying the alleged perpetrators, was played in court.

The recording was made on June 20, 2018.

“He grabbed me by the neck,” said the victim.

“I couldn’t breathe at all. He was the one who was violent,” she alleged of Comin.

“He kept coming at me sexually and orally,” she said.

The victim alleges that Comin did not act alone. She said in the video statement that she was placed on her knees on the bed while Comin and another man, whom she did not name, had simultaneous vaginal and oral sex with her.

The case continues.
