Kingston, Nova Scotia – The RCMP is investigating multiple historical sexual assaults reported to have occurred at an unlicensed residential daycare on Old French Rd. in Kingston.
On September 20, 2016, information came forward to Kings District RCMP indicating that while attending the daycare, a youth was allegedly sexually assaulted by a male adult who lived in the residence. The male was not an employee of the daycare. An investigation began immediately and as a result, two additional victims have come forward.
On September 21, at approximately 5:30 p.m., 28-year-old Jeffrey Roy Casey from Kingston was arrested without incident at a Kingston residence. He appeared in Kentville Provincial Court yesterday and has been charged with:
- Sexual Interference x 3
- Sexual Assault x 3
- Invitation to Sexual Touching x 2
The RCMP is concerned there may be other victims and are asking citizens to please contact Kings District RCMP at (902) 765-3317 if they have any information.
“I can appreciate that this would be extremely concerning for parents whose children attended this daycare,” says Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, Nova Scotia RCMP. “We want parents to know that in investigations of this nature, we work closely with the Department of Community Services and have investigators who are specially trained in interviewing children. If you have any concerns, please contact police immediately.”
Casey was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear at Kentville Provincial Court on October 25, 2016.
The investigation is ongoing.
