Toronto police say they’ve arrested a 32-year-old man for allegedly sexually assaulting three children at two churches.
Detective Constable Don Bai says William (Wil) Christopher Claveria faces 22 charges and police believe there may be more alleged victims.
Det. Constable Bai alleges Mr. Claveria preyed on young children at two Filipino churches in the city’s north end.
He is asking members of the Jesus Reigns Forever International Ministry and the Word And Life Christian Assembly to contact police if their children had interactions with Mr. Claveria.
Det. Constable Bai says Facebook contacted U.S. authorities about allegations a man was trading child pornography images and videos and the case eventually landed on his desk.
Mr. Claveria is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
