Trin­ity Bay man re­leased on bail

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

A Trin­ity Bay man ac­cused of in­ap­pro­pri­ate sex­ual be­hav­iour with three chil­dren un­der the age of nine has been re­leased on bail.

The bail hear­ing took place at pro­vin­cial court in Har­bour Grace on Fri­day.

The man is due back in court on July 28 to an­swer to the fol­low­ing charges: three counts of in­vi­ta­tion to sex­ual touch­ing, sex­ual as­sault and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

The man can­not be iden­ti­fied be­cause of a court-im­posed pub­li­ca­tion ban meant to pro­tect the iden­tity of his al­leged vic­tims.

He was re­leased on the con­di­tion that he not in­ter­act with any­one un­der the age of 16, un­less he is in the pres­ence of an­other adult.

Po­lice say the in­ci­dent took place on the evening of Wed­nes­day, July 6.

The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­ceived a com­plaint that the man had en­ticed three young males into his res­i­dence and “ in­vited them to sex­ual touch­ing.”

Po­lice say more charges are likely, and there are in­di­ca­tions that other sim­i­lar in­ci­dents may have oc­curred in the past.
