A 34 year-old Oshawa gymnastics coach is facing sexual assault and exploitation charges in relation to historic crimes from 2005-2022.

The suspect, who was employed by a gymnastics club in Durham Region, was identified and arrested. The name of the club is being withheld to protect the victim’s identity.

The suspect worked at the gymnastics club from 2005 to 2022 but is no longer employed there. Investigators want to ensure there are no other victims.
