A London police officer who was charged last month with sexual assault has been charged with two more offenses, in relation to off-duty incidents.

The officer has been charged with breach of undertaking and criminal harassment.

After the 41-year-old officer was charged November 22 with sexual assault, police say a complainant reported an alleged incident involving the same officer in Waterloo Region.

Earlier this month Waterloo Regional Police charged the officer with two counts of criminal harassment and single counts of being unlawfully in a dwelling and making a harassing phone call.

The officer's name is not being released due to the nature of the allegations and to protect the identity of the alleged victims.

Nearly 25,700 full time Ontario college students received tuition refunds after a five-week-strike derailed their semester.

Ontario's Ministry of Advanced Education confirmed today that 10.3 per cent of Ontario's roughly 250,000 full-time college students asked for, and received, their money back after the strike.

Minister Deb Matthews said that figures are still preliminary and could change in the coming weeks as further numbers are reported by Ontario's 24 colleges.

Last month, Matthews ordered colleges to refund the tuition money for any student who felt unable to complete the condensed semester.

The decision is likely to cost the schools millions of dollars which would have otherwise been saved because of the labour dispute.

The government ended the strike in November with back-to-work legislation passed in a rare weekend sitting at Queen's Park.
