Ottawa man, 65, facing sex assault charges

A 65-year-old man is facing sex assault charges after a young girl was allegedly inappropriately touched at a store in the Carlington area Saturday.

Ottawa Police say a young girl and her mother entered the store on Carling off Maitland when a male customer touched the girl. The girl's mother reported the incident to police.

Jacques Mallette is charged with one count of sexual assault and one of sexual interference. He's scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Investigators say they're concerned there may be other victims and ask anyone with information to contact the sex crimes unit.
