Seventh-day Adventist Deacon charged after sex assault at church
A Deacon from a church in Downsview is accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old man earlier this year.
Toronto Police say the alleged inappropriate sexual behaviour occurred Jan. 17 at Mount Zion Filipino Seventh-day Adventist Church on St. Regis Rd., near Sheppard Ave. W. and Keele St.
A Deacon allegedly "lured" the victim into the church basement and then sexually assaulted him, Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu said Thursday.
Nonie Abrece, 33, of Toronto, was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of sexual assault. He's scheduled to appear in court at 1000 Finch Ave. W. on June 9.
Police have released a photo of the accused man because they are concerned about the possibility of other victims.
