Officers said George is known to frequent the areas of Brampton, Toronto, Shelburne, and Montreal.

Toronto police spokesperson Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook said they’re making the public known of the incident because they believe there may be more victims.

“Obviously this is a person in a position of trust, and the person he allegedly assaulted is a minor,” Cook said. “So obviously this is something of great concern. That’s why we’re making the public aware.”

Anyone with further information is asked to call police at 416-808-2922 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
