TOROTNO – A Toronto support worker accused of sexually assaulting a 95-year-old man at his home is facing six new charges.

Police say Danilo Alcala, 61, faces three counts of sexual assault and three counts of sexual exploitation of a person with a disability related to the same victim.

The accused has already been charged with one count of sexual assault.

In a media release last week, police say the alleged assault happened on July 16 at 9:41 a.m. at the victim’s residence near the Broadview Ave and Mortimer Ave. area.

Alcala is employed by Spectrum Health Care and a statement released by the service provider last week said they are “co-operating fully” with police with an internal investigation also launched surrounding the allegation.

Police believe there may be more victims and anyone with information is urged to come forward.
