A 52-year-old London man is facing sex-related charges in connection with incidents that allegedly happened in the mid-1990s.
London police say Chad Ian Tucker was arrested Sunday and is facing charges of sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and sexual assault.
The charges stem from incidents involving a young boy that reportedly occurred from 1990 to 1997.
At the time, police say Tucker was a leader with Scouts Canada and a driver for a para-transit service. He was also a first aid/CPR instructor for a part of that time.
The London Police Service is concerned that there may be more victims who have not reported to police.
Anyone who may have been a victim is urged to call police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.londoncrimestoppers.com.
Tucker was released and is scheduled to appear in court on June 13.
This is not the first time Tucker has faced similar charges.
His defence lawyer, Nick Cake, confirms he was sentenced to 18 months behind bars for sexual interference in 2016.
That charge stemmed from incidents that happened in the early 2000s.
Cake tells CTV News the current charges do not stem from any of his vocational or volunteer work.
