The incidents occurred in Ottawa between 1987 and 1991 and criminal charges were laid in September 2013. As a result of media coverage this September, more victims came forward to police.  The Ottawa Police criminal investigation has been ongoing ever since.


On October 22, 2013, the Sexual Assault & Child Abuse Section arrested and charged Kelly JONES, 57 years old, of Ottawa with over 30 counts of sexual offences, including Sexual Assault, Sexual Interference, Invitation to Sexual Touching and Sexual Exploitation, Intimidation and sexual offences per Criminal Code charges existing at the time of the offences.

He will appear in court on October 23, 2013 for a bail hearing.  Mr. Jones coached various teams at the Bantam level in the Ottawa area during these years. He was also a baseball coach.

The Cornwall Community Police Service will be increasing the number of officers on community patrol on Halloween night in order to increase our visibility and presence in our neighbourhoods.


We would like to remind motorist to be especially vigilant and slow down on this night when pedestrian traffic increases as children in our neighbourhoods take to the street to collect their Halloween treats.


Volunteers from Mobile Community Watch will also be working in partnership with the Cornwall Community Police Service in providing Halloween Safety Patrols.  Volunteers will be patrolling neighborhoods in vehicles identified with Mobile Community Watch signs between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. in order to provide assistance if necessary to children or anyone who may need to contact the police.


Halloween Safety Tips


  • Wear make-up instead of a mask, so you can see properly.

  • Go trick or treating with family or friends.

  • Let people know your route.

  • An adult should check the treats you collect before you eat them.

  • Walk do not run; and look all ways before crossing the street.

  • Trick or treat on one side of the street and then on the other side.

  • Only go to homes where the lights are on.

  • Do not go anywhere with a stranger.

  • If someone invites you alone into a house say NO THANKS.

  • Use a flashlight to help light your way.

  • Choose a costume you can walk around in comfortably.



Le Service communautaire de la Police de Cornwall augmentera le nombre de policiers sur la patrouille communautaire le soir de l’Halloween afin d’accroître la présence et visibilité policière dans nos voisinages.


Nous désirons rappeler aux automobilistes d’être particulièrement vigilants et de ralentir ce soir là étant donné le plus grand nombre de piétons lorsque les enfants dans nos voisinages se promèneront dans les rues pour amasser des friandises d’Halloween.


Des bénévoles de la surveillance mobile communautaire seront également de la partie en partenariat avec le Service communautaire de la Police de Cornwall, en offrant des patrouilles de sécurité pour l’Halloween.  Les bénévoles patrouilleront les rues dans des véhicules identifiés avec des panneaux de la Surveillance mobile communautaire entre 17h00 et 21h00 afin de venir en aide aux enfants ou quiconque qui aurait besoin de l’assistance de la police.


Conseils de sécurité pour l’Halloween


  • Porte du maquillage plutôt qu’un masque, pour voir mieux.

  • Fais la tournée de l’Halloween avec des amis ou un membre de la famille.

  • Mets quelqu’un au courant de ton trajet.

  • Un adulte devrait vérifier les friandises que tu récolte avant que tu les manges.

  • Marche, ne cours pas; et regarde de tous les côtés avant de traverser la rue.

  • Fais un côté de la rue en premier, ensuite l’autre côté.

  • Vas seulement aux maisons où les lumières sont allumées.

  • Ne part pas avec quelqu’un que tu ne connais pas (un inconnu).

  • Si quelqu’un t’invite à entrer seul dans une maison, dis NON MERCI.

  • Une lampe de poche t’aidera à éclairer ton parcours.

  • Porte un costume comfortable pour marcher avec aise.
