Toronto police say a man previously convicted in connection with the sexual abuse of an 11-year-old boy is now facing new charges involving another minor.

Police say another boy came forward in February, alleging the man sexually assaulted him on multiple occasions while cutting his hair between 2011 and 2015.

The suspect, a 53-year-old man, has now been charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and other offences.
