TORONTO – Police say an amateur baseball coach in Toronto is facing a number of sex-related charges in a historical case.

Toronto police say a man recently came forward to report numerous instances of alleged sexual misconduct.

They say the alleged incidents took place between 1993 and 2001 while the victim was between 11 and 19 years old.

They say 51-year-old Robert Humphrey is now facing five charges including two counts of sexual assault, two counts of uttering threats and sexual exploitation.

Earlier this year, he was charged for allegedly sexual assaulting a woman who was nine years old at the time of the offences.

Police say Humphrey had access to children through his work as a baseball coach and his jobs in hockey rinks in the city. They’re urging anyone with information to come forward.
