Owen Sound Police Charge Male in Sexual Assault Investigation

Posted on June 23, 2022

The Owen Sound Police Service have charged an 81 year old Owen Sound male in relation to an investigation in which two young female children were touched inappropriately in a sexual manner on an area school bus. 

The male, who was employed as a school bus monitor for a local company providing school bus transportation services, appeared in court on May 18th charged with two counts of Sexual Assault and two counts of Sexual Interference.  The male has been terminated and is no longer performing duties as a school bus monitor.  Police believe that the male was only associated to a single bus route which serviced three area Catholic schools.  School officials have directly notified parents of children on that route. 

The police investigation will be continuing to determine whether any further victims may be involved or whether any other students on the bus route may have observed anything relevant to the investigation.  No students will be contacted directly by police, should any follow up be required it will be coordinated jointly through the school and parents.
