Police have arrested a 45-year-old man they allege committed sexual assaults on two children over more than a 10-year period.

The man allegedly befriended a family in the Queen Street East and Jones Avenue area around 1992, gaining access to two young children.

From then until 2003, the children, who ranged from two-years-old to 12-years-old during the time they had contact with the suspect, were assaulted multiple times, police allege.

Jeremy Nathaniel Gregg, of Toronto, was arrested on Tuesday.

He is facing seven counts of sexual assault, seven counts of sexual exploitation, and three counts of invitation to sexual touching.

Gregg was working as a scout leader in Toronto for Scouts Canada at the time of the alleged incidents.

Police believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
