For Immediate Release:16-Nov-2017 @ 3:32 PM
MRU #:17-144882

The Edmonton Police Service has arrested and charged a 49-year-old city man in connection with the sexual assault of a six-year-old female.

It was reported to police that on two separate occasions during the summer of 2017, Harvey William Leroux, 49, of Edmonton, allegedly sexually assaulted a six-year-old female at his Edmonton residence.

Leroux was taken into custody and charged with sexual assault and sexual interference on Oct. 24, 2017, following an extensive investigation.

Investigators believe the accused may have also had similar contact with other children. It is alleged Leroux befriends mothers with young children, in an attempt to eventually gain their trust and access to the children. 
 
The EPS is releasing a photo of the accused, as it believes there may be additional complainants and/or other families whom Leroux has manipulated. 

Investigators urge any other potential complainants to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm
