A 40-year-old Richmond Hill man has been charged in connection with the sexual assault of a former student.

York Regional Police Special Victims Unit says they were told of an alleged sexual assault on a former student by a man who works as a vice-principal at St. Robert Catholic School in Markham, on March 16.

On Tuesday, investigators arrested Paul Paterson without incident and charged him with one count sexual assault and one count sexual exploitation.

Police are asking any witnesses who may have more information to come forward but want to assure the public there are no further victims.
