Toronto Police believe there may be other victims of a man accused of sexual assaulting a six-year-old in the Woodbine and Danforth area.
Daniel Harker, 23, was arrested Wednesday, March 16, 2016 and charged with sexual assault and sexual interference, said Toronto Police in a release March 22.
Police say it is alleged that the parents of the victim contacted Harker after viewing his babysitting services profile online at care.com, an online caregiving database and service.
“On Saturday, March 5, 2016, the accused attended the victim’s home in the Woodbine Avenue/Danforth Avenue area,” said police. “The victim, a six-year-old, later disclosed to his parents that he had been sexually assaulted.
“Police believe there may be other victims as the accused had access to other children in the community. The following is a list of some of the locations he worked:
– Toronto District School Board as a lunchroom monitor at Pape Avenue Junior Public School, 220 Langley Avenue
– City of Toronto as a part-time Recreation Worker allowing him access to children at various locations including wading pools and gym classes
– SH Armstrong Community Centre, 56 Woodfield Road, for pre-school-aged children and drop-in program for older children
– Gledhill Child Care Centre, 2 Gledhill Avenue, as a pre-school daycare worker
The Toronto District School Board, City of Toronto, and Care.com have been cooperating with police.”
