A Calgary man has been arrested and faces multiple charges related to sexual assaults on young girls in Garson and the RM of Springfield.
Ivan Valintine Cesnik, 57, became the subject of a investigation after Jan. 22, 2018, when Oakbank RCMP received a report regarding a historical sexual assault involving four female victims, three aged eight and one aged seven.

Cesnik is charged with three counts of sexual assault, three counts of uttering threats, three counts of sexual interference, and two counts of administering a noxious substance.
Police said in release there may be more victims in the Manitoba, Alberta and the Kelowna, BC area.
