Police seek possible victims of Urgences Santé ambulance tech charged with sexual assault

Montreal and St-Jerôme police are seeking possible victims of an Urgences Sante ambulance technician charged with sexually assaulting two patients he was transporting to hospital.

Sylvain Depairon, 57, appeared yesterday via videoconference at the Montreal courthouse and remains detained pending a bail hearing that could happen as early as today.

The alleged crimes happened between June and November 2017.

The Journal de Montreal reports that police say they believe the first victim - a blind woman - was attacked during an ambulance ride last summer and that the second was assaulted in November. 

Depairon has reportedly been suspended from his job and moonlighted as a clown at children's parties.  

If you believe you were a victim of Depairon, you can call 911 or go to your local police station.
