An 81-year-old Sault Ste. Marie man faces sex-related charges in connection with a case that dates back 40 years ago. In September Sault police were told about a series of sexual assaults that took place from 1970 to 1973 and involved young girls. After a two month investigation police charged the now elderly man with five counts each of gross indecency and indecent assault on a female. Investigators believe other women may have been assaulted by the accused when they were children and are asking them to call police.
