The incidents are alleged to have occurred between 2007 and 2012.
On the 20th of June 2013 Tyler MANCUSO, age 30, of 34 Highcrest Street was charged with 7 counts of sexual assault. He will appear in court on July 22.
The accused was known to the victims through his capacity as an athletic trainer with local sports teams.
Investigators feel that there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information, or those who have had contact with Tyler MANCUSO in his capacity as an athletic trainer, to come forward and contact Detective Armstrong at 705-949-6300 ext 262.
