Mounties say they have reason to believe a Vancouver Island man charged in a number of historic sex assaults against young boys may have targeted more victims in B.C.’s Interior.

Nakusp RCMP is canvassing the community to find anyone else who may have been victimized by Harry Sadd, a former youth badminton coach in the Victoria area.

Sadd, 71, was arrested in August 2016 after a victim came forward to claim he was assaulted a number of times in the 70s and 80s.

Since then a number of other men have claimed that Sadd sexually assaulted them when they were boys, with most victims between nine and 15 years old, according to Victoria police. He currently faces 23 counts related to sexual assault.

Because Sadd lived in Nakusp in the mid-60s to mid-70s, RCMP say there are likely more potential victims who live or previously lived in the town who have yet to come forward.

“We would like for any individuals who may have been victimized by Sadd or [who] hold information regarding other victims to contact us,” Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said in a statement.

Investigators believe Sadd likely used his position as badminton coach to gain access to his alleged victims, and have confirmed that a few men who have come forward were coached by him.

Those with information are asked to call Nakusp RCMP at 250-265-3677 or their local police.

Sadd remains in custody and made a court appearance on Thursday.
