It’s alleged that in early May 2009, the man befriended the teen at a southwest Calgary art supply store and studio where he worked as an instructor and she frequented as a student and customer.
Police believe the man sexually assaulted the teen over a period of seven months. These assaults are alleged to have occurred at the studio as well as at the accused’s Okotoks home.
The teen eventually stopped going to the studio and the two were no longer in contact.
In December 2010, the teen came forward to the Calgary Police Service and reported the incidents. An investigation was launched and on Thursday, April 28, 2011, police arrested Terrence Lee ANDREWS, 64, at his home in Okotoks.
ANDREWS is charged with sexual interference with a child under 16, invitation to sexual touching with a child under 16 and sexual contact with a youth by person in authority.
Police continue to encourage anyone who has been the victim of a sexual assault to come forward, regardless of how much time has passed.
