× Toronto man arrested in alleged sexual assaults at North York church dating back to 2013
A 59-year-old man from Toronto has been arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault on a 13-year-old girl in 2013 at a North York church, police say.
The man was arrested Wednesday, police said, and is being held pending a bail hearing. He appeared in court on Thursday.
Toronto police received a call on Sunday from someone claiming to be the victim, who said the assault happened years ago and told police she had forgiven the man for his actions, according to Det. Sgt. Jim Mackie.
CNN reached out to Mackie for comment and will update this article if we hear back.
In the police incident report, the girl’s mom said a man “came to her kids’ school and sat at the children’s table” after providing the pastor at a Toronto church with a fake name for him, Mackie said.
“The girl’s mom, who had no idea about the incident … finally confronted him on the child,” Mackie said.
The girl later described the man to her mom.
“He allegedly touched her, inappropriately touched her and inappropriately touched her in a horizontal position,” Mackie said.
The man, identified by Toronto police as Trevor Yamilette, took a cab to the church on Saturday to be there at the time of the alleged assault, Mackie said.
He was “visibly intoxicated” when police arrested him, Mackie said.
Police are looking into whether there are more victims.
