A former Penticton man has been charged with sexual assault and sexual interference against two male youth, and RCMP believe there may be more victims.

Robert John Graham, a 38-year-old West Kelowna resident, was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Penticton for two charges of sexual assault and three charges of sexual interference.

According to RCMP, Graham was released on bail with strict conditions that included no contact with anyone under the age of 18 who is unaccompanied by an adult.

“We honestly believe that there is definitely more potential victims out there,” said Const. Steve Holmes, media relations officer for the Kelowna detachment.

“These incidents for which he is being charged are a couple years old or so, however, we believe his behaviour has continued and there are not only victims from back then but very well could be more recent victims.”

Holmes said charges were formally laid against Graham on Sept. 1 after an investigation was started last October by Penticton RCMP.

Anyone who believes they have been a victim of Graham are being asked to come forward to Penticton or West Kelowna RCMP.
