A school bus driver is facing multiple charges after three pre-teen children were allegedly sexually assaulted.

The incidents allegedly took place between September 2015 and January of this year.

Frank Gavas, 61, of Toronto, was arrested on Friday and has been charged with six counts of sexual assault and six counts of sexual interference.

Police said Gavas was employed by Stock Transportation from 2006 and has driven for numerous schools in the Scarborough area, including Georges Vanier Secondary School, Wexford Public School, George Peck Public School and Sloane Public School.

“We know that this situation may be upsetting for some of our students and will ensure that supports are in place for those students,” the Toronto District School Board said in a letter sent to parents on Wednesday. “TDSB staff is available to our school to help students with any questions or concerns they might have.”
