Sexual interference charges are applicable when the alleged assault involved a person under the age of consent (usually 16 years old), according to the Criminal Code of Canada.

King was released from custody with conditions and his next court appearance is set for May 3, 2022 at Lloydminster Provincial Court.

The RCMP is asking the public to come forward with any information about similar incidents.

Police released a photo of King, in the event an alias was used.
