CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Two Calgary men have been charged with sexual assault and exploitation of minors following a nearly four-month investigation.

ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit said a 34- and a 32-year-old man were arrested in October following a tip the previous month regarding suspicious online activity.

It’s alleged the two men, who lived together, were communicating with teenage girls in Alberta and Saskatchewan. So far, two underage victims have been identified.

Police checked several computers and electronic devices from the home and believe there may be more victims.

“It is a troubling realization that we don’t know how many victims are out there. However, we are hoping they have the courage to come forward and help prevent other girls from falling prey,” said Staff Sgt. Dominic Mayhew with ICE.

The two men have been charged with sexual assault, exploitation as well as possessing and accessing child pornography.

Anyone with information regarding this case or other instances of child exploitation is asked to call police or cybertip.ca
