A Winnipeg man is facing several charges after five individuals came forward with allegations they were sexually assaulted while students and players on football teams the man coached.
The Winnipeg Police Service says that In April 2022, the Sex Crimes Unit was contacted by five adult survivors of historical sexual assaults. Police say that the assaults were reported to have occurred between 2004 and 2011. The man was a teacher and football coach during the timeframe at Churchill High School and then Vincent Massey Collegiate.
"The suspect forged relationships with these students, where he regularly communicated with them," a press release from the WPS says. "The majority of the offences occurred at the suspect’s residence."
On April 12, 2022, the Sex Crimes Unit arrested and charged Kelsey Albert Dana MCKAY, 51, of Winnipeg, with five counts of sexual assault, four counts of sexual exploitation, one count of sexual interference, and four counts of luring.
