    An aspiring teacher has been charged sexually assaulting young girls.

    Police began investigating allegations of an inappropriate relationship between a 14-year-old girl late last year. The girl’s parents called police to report their 14-year-old was driving around with a 27-year-old man. The girl told the police the man never did anything criminal. 

    Calgary police continued to investigate and discovered the man had contacted other girls online using the names Josh and Brandon and claiming to be younger.

    In April a 13-year-old girl said the man asked her for sexual favours.

    Police subsequently identified two more victims.

    Christian Allen Sarile is charged with three counts each of sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, sexual assault and obtaining sexual services for consideration from a person under 18 years of age.

    Sarile was pursuing a bachelor of education at the University of Lethbridge and had already obtained a music degree from the University of Calgary.

    His social media accounts have been taken down.

    Sarile will be back in court June 6.

    He is out on bail and is ordered to have no contact with people under 18-years-old. He also cannot volunteer or go to places where people under 18-years-old frequently are, such as schools and rec centres. He is forbidden from having a computer or cell phone that can access the internet. Sarile is also banned from consuming alcohol or drugs or going to pubs and bars.
