A 69-year-old man who once owned a pizza place in Milton is facing charges in connection with the sexual assault of a number of young boys who worked for him in the 1970’s.

Police say the suspect was a co-owner of the Pizza Stop between 1972 and 1978.

During that time, it is alleged that he would offer young men jobs at the restaurant and then abuse them, often paying them for sexual acts.

The victims were between the ages of 10 and 16.

Keith John Urch, of Burlington, is facing a number of charges, including buggery, indecent assault on a male and gross indecency.

Police say they believe there may be other victims who have not yet come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Const. Wendy Clayton at (905) 465-8980 or Det. Const. Ross Amore at (905) 465-8973.
