An Abbotsford man has been charged with sexually assaulting a boy in Ontario in the 1970s.

York Regional Police say the alleged assaults occurred when Nicolas Cadorette, 67, was a trainer for a boys’ hockey team in the city of Vaughan, Ont.

Police began an investigation into Cadorette on Jan. 30, 2014 after a man came forwarded, saying he had been sexually assaulted, starting at the age of 12, when he was playing hockey at an arena in Woodbridge, a suburb of Vaughan.

Police say the accused befriended the boy and offered him drives home from the arena. They allege that on numerous occasions between October 1974 and March 1976, Cadorette sexually assaulted the boy during these drives.

The assaults also allegedly took place when the accused took the boy on a trip to his family home in Quebec and on a trip to a cottage in Huntsville during the same time period, police say.

Cadorette turned himself in to police last week – on Tuesday, June 14 – without incident.

He has been charged with two counts of indecent assault and two counts of gross indecency. He next appears in court in Newmarket, Ont. on July 19.

York Regional Police are asking that any other victims contact the crimes against children section at 1-866-876-5423 (ext. 7017) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. They can also text CRIMES (274637), starting with the word YORK.
