A 50-year-old Port Colborne man is facing five counts of sexual assaults involving a minor.

Todd Albert Klacko was arrested and charged Thursday with the alleged offences of exposing his genitals to a minor, inviting a person under 16 years old to sexual touching, sexual assault, sexual interference, and failure to comply with prohibition regarding children.

Police executed a search warrant at Klacko's house Feb. 7 and found a number of computer devices and media files, which were sent for forensic examination. Officers believe there might be more victims and are asking members of the community to help them gather more information.

Klacko was held in custody pending a bail hearing Feb. 8 at the Robert S.K. Welch Courthouse in St. Catharines.
