EDMONTON - Edmonton police are waiting to see if there are more victims of a former Edmonton school teacher now facing sex charges.

The alleged offences occurred at the Terwillegar Recreation Centre on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23 when the accused inappropriately touched two pre-teen females at the pool.

“It was very peculiar. He was putting on his goggles and going underneath the water and observing the young girls swimming by him and then occasionally he would touch some of them as he swam by,” said Edmonton police spokesperson Scott Pattison, adding the accused was acting in a predatory fashion. In one instance, the accused followed one of the girls to a wading pool where it’s alleged he inappropriately touched her.
