Two kidnapping and robbery crimes are not believed to be connected: VicPD
(Victoria Police Department)

Victoria police have issued an update on their investigation into alleged sexual assaults by 70-year-old Esquimalt man Kit Wong.

Wong was arrested on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and faces four charges of sexual assault related to his work as an acupuncturist, massage therapist, and practitioner of Chinese medicine. He also served as an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces.

He was released on bail the next day on the condition that he doesn’t practice medicine or offer any massage or other therapy that involves physical touch to any female person apart from members of his immediate family.

At the time of his arrest, police said they believed there may be other victims, and asked anyone with information to come forward.

Since then, police say additional people have come forward with information that investigators are now following up with.

VicPD could not confirm if those people were victims themselves, and said further investigation will need to take place.

If you are a victim or have information regarding Wong that you would like to share with police, investigators are asking you to call their non-emergency line at (250) 995-7654. Alternatively, you can contact the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre at (250) 383-3232.
