A Toronto man is out on bail after he was arrested Wednesday in connection with sexual assaults on children.  Police allege Robert Dunford used his position as a children’s coach to befriend the families of a 3-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy.  He was able to be alone with the children, and that’s when the assaults allegedly took place.

“The male has been investigated and charged as a result of allegations of abuse that occurred on a 3-year-old girl in 2007 and a 4-year-old boy in 2013.”said Detective Sergeant Greg Payne with the Child and Youth Advocacy Centre of the Toronto Police Sex Crimes Unit.

49-year-old Robert Dunford has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference.   He was released on bail on Wednesday with the condition that he not be in the presence of anyone under 16 years of age unless he is directly supervised by an adult.

Police are concerned that there may be more victims as Dunford has worked and volunteered as a children’s hockey and soccer coach in the west end of Toronto for years.  Below are some of the locations where Dunford has worked and volunteered.
