A 39-year-old man has been charged in connection with several sexual assaults that occurred at the West Edmonton Mall World Waterpark over the weekend.
Police were called to the waterpark at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
Officers allege a man followed and inappropriately touched six teenage girls while they were swimming at the waterpark.
“It’s fairly shocking,” EPS spokesperson Scott Pattison said. “It’s involved and traumatized six individuals and their families.”
Pattison said all six girls were under the age of 16.
“The girls were very courageous in coming forward and talking to the lifeguard, that’s not always the case,” Pattison said.
