Investigators from the Peel Regional Police Special Victims Unit have charged a man in a sexual assault investigation.
Police say that recently, a young victim came forward in regard to ongoing incidents involving inappropriate text messages, which began in the spring of 2018 and lead to an arrest on December 3, 2019.
Investigators have arrested Eduart Pacheco, a 55-year-old male from Brampton, who was a hockey coach for a youth hockey team.
He is also being charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and criminal harassment.
