Toronto agent accused of sexually assaulting young models

A Toronto modelling agent has been charged with sexually assaulting young models and police believe that there may be more victims.

Norwayne Anderson, 43, faces five charges of sexual assault and two charges of sexual exploitation.

The sexual exploitation accusations are “because of the age of the alleged victims at the time of the offence and the position of power that he held,” said lead investigator Detective Constable Stacey Jennings. “He’s a talent modelling agent. They were models – young models.”

Investigators – who announced the charges on Thursday -- allege Mr. Anderson used his position to sexually abuse at least two teenage boys and one young man.

Police believe there may be other victims and asked anyone with information to contact investigators, an appeal that came as the city’s modelling community is gathered as part of Toronto Fashion Week.

“It is important to get the information out there as we do believe that there are other victims,” said Constable Wendy Drummond, a spokeswoman for the Toronto Police Service.  (more...)
