A 46-year-old Prince George man, arrested in Vancouver on Monday, faces numerous charges in connection with what police are calling historical sexual offences involving a young girl.
Kevin Alexander Roberts has been charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual assault with a weapon, invitation to sexual touching, assault, and assault causing bodily harm for offences allegedly committed in Vancouver and Prince George.
Police say they can not reveal the years in which the alleged offences occurred due to a publication ban put in place to protect the victim’s identity.
The victim, now an adult, reported the crimes to Vancouver police.
Investigators believe there are additional survivors who would have been between the ages of four and 18 at the time of the offences.
Roberts is a truck driver with a transient lifestyle who travels throughout B.C. and Alberta. He has also worked as both a school bus driver in the Prince George area and as a mover.
“These types of crimes are extremely traumatic and survivors live with the life-long impact,” VPD Sgt. Jason Robillard said in a press release. “We are providing this information and a photo of the suspect, with hopes that we will uncover more information and help prevent this from happening to someone else.”
Anyone with more information is asked to call the VPD’s sex crime unit at 604-717-0600 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
