A Waterloo man is facing additional charges in connection with a lengthy child exploitation investigation.

The 70 new charges, announced Thursday afternoon, include sexual assault, sexual interference, making child pornography and voyeurism.

Two additional victims were recently located, leading to the additional charges.

Waterloo Regional Police also say the accused was known to the victims and all of the offences occurred in Kitchener and Oxford County.

The man, 29, was originally arrested in October 2018.

No name has been released by police.

When he was first arrested, he was charged with three counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference and making child pornography.

In October, Waterloo Regional Police and other police forces in the province arrested ten people in connection to an ongoing investigation into the illegal distribution and possession of child exploitation material.

12 search warrants were executed at residences and vehicles throughout the region, including Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, New Hamburg, Elmira and St. Jacobs.

Waterloo Regional Police were assisted in their investigation by Ontario Provincial Police, Guelph Police Service, Durham Regional Police Service, Hamilton Police Service, Woodstock Police Service, London Police Service, Windsor Police Service, Brantford Police Service and Peel Regional Police Service.
