Volunteer charged with sexual assault of senior

Police have charged a volunteer with sexually assaulting an elderly handicapped woman who lives alone in Scugog Ont.

Investigators say the victim called the suspect, asking him to bring her vitamins.

Police allege he touched her inappropriately, and when she objected, he left.  

The incident was reported a few days later after the victim conferred with family members.

Howard Crawford, 78, has been charged with sexual assault.  

The accused works as a volunteer with the elderly and investigators are now trying to determine if there could be other victims.
