A coach associated with the Langley Gymnastics Foundation has been charged with sexual interference, the Langley RCMP announced Tuesday.
John William Henry, a 32-year-old Abbotsford man, has been charged after an investigation began on Thursday, March 6.
Henry was arrested that day, and charged on Friday, March 7. He is being held in custody until a court appearance on Friday, March 14.
The Langley RCMP Serious Crime Unit has taken on the investigation, and is interested in hearing from anyone with more information on the matter, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP.
The investigation progressed quickly for a number of reasons, said Marks.
â€œMost importantly, to remove the possibility of future incidents,â€ she said.
Henry has been cooperative with investigators, Marks said. He did not have a criminal record, police say.
Police are releasing few other details about the investigation as the case is now headed towards the courts, and to protect the identity of the victim and any potential witnesses.
