CALGARY – A video of a young girl’s interview with a child abuse detective was played in court Thursday in the sex abuse trial of Christopher Colborne.

The girl said at the time her dayhome operator’s husband warned, “don’t tell Kim.”

Colborne, 41, is charged with sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching of the little girl while she was at his wife’s Calgary day home in Coventry Hills.

The girl said Colborne told her, “‘here, it’s a toy.’ … I touched his penis.”

The assault was reported to police in March 2015, after the girl, then four years old, told her parents she was asked to fondle a man.

The incident is alleged to have occurred sometime between Sept. 2014 and the end of Dec. 2014, at a dayhome located in the 0-100 block of Covehaven Crescent N.E.

The man, who lived in the home but was not a childcare worker, is alleged to have had sexual contact with the girl when the two were alone together.

The child will continue to testify Friday.
