A second person has filed a notice of civil claim against former Kelowna RCMP officer Brian Matthew Burkett.

The newest claim was filed in Kelowna Supreme Court on Monday, alleging that Burkett tried to pursue a sexual relationship with the plaintiff, and that he sexually harassed her.

The claim says the incidents stemmed from when Burkett visited the plaintiff in May 2016 following an alleged report of domestic assault.

In September, the B.C. Prosecution Service announced that Burkett was facing charges after allegations of misconduct against seven people.

In October, another female plaintiff filed a civil claim, stating Burkett sexually harassed her by repeatedly texting and requesting explicit pictures of her breasts and genitalia.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

On Tuesday, the RCMP told Global News that since Burkett is no longer a police officer, and combined with ongoing court matters, it would be inappropriate to comment.
