An Oshawa man faces numerous charges after police received reports of sexual assaults against minors stretching back to the 1980s.

An alleged victim came forward to Durham Regional Police to report the assaults on April 6. They said the crimes began in 1987 and involved more than one victim.

Malcolm MacNeill, age 66, is charged with 21 offenses including; seven counts of sexual assault of a person under 16, six counts of sexual interference of a person under 16, three counts of inviting sexual touching, forcible confinement, gross indecency, assault with a weapon and two counts of assault.

None of the charges have been proven in court. MacNeill was later released with conditions.

“Investigators want to ensure there are no further victims,” police said, “Anyone with information in relation to the accused is asked to contact police as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can call D. Cst. Dalziel of the Special Victims Unit at 1-888-579-1520 x5334.
