A 71-year-old Toronto man has been arrested in connection with a historic sexual assault investigation.  William Robert Metcalfe, who goes by the first name “Bob”, was arrested on Thursday for alleged attacks on a 12-year-old boy between 1977 and 1983. 

Investigators say the attacks took place mainly at the Sagamore Farm group home in the area of Parham, Ontario, but incidents also occurred during the same time period in the Queen Street East and Victoria Park Avenue area of Toronto.
