Have you had contact with this man?
Mounties are calling for any more potential victims in a sexual assault case.
Joel Scarff, 38, of Coquitlam, was arrested on Jan. 2 and charged with four counts of sexual interference and two counts of invitation to sexual touching on people who were under 16.
He is alleged to have used social media to meet and date women where he subsequently met younger people. While he lives in Coquitlam, he is known to have frequented various areas throughout the Lower Mainland.
Based on the method that Scarff is alleged to have met his victims, Mounties are concerned that there may be more of them that have yet to come forward.
Following his last court appearance on Jan. 23, Scarff was released on several conditions.
He can have no contact with his alleged victims. He is also prohibited from attending areas where young people can expect to be present (i.e. parks, playgrounds, and schools) or being employed or volunteer in a position that involves trust or authority towards young persons.
Scarff’s next scheduled court appearance is set for Feb. 6 at Surrey Provincial Court
Surrey RCMP are requesting that anyone who has met Joel Scarff through social media, or has any further information about him to please contact the Surrey RCMP's Child Abuse and Sexual Offence Unit at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS if you wish to remain anonymous.
