On January 9, Child Exploitation investigators executed a search warrant in the area of Dufferin St. W. and Eglinton Ave. W.

Terrence Noftall, 55, was subsequently charged with several offences, including luring a child under 18, making sexually explicit material available to a child and breaching a prohibition order in relation to a Criminal Code Section 161 order.

At a news conference at police headquarters on March 8, Detective Constable Alexandra Marks said Noftall was previously employed at Toronto Western Hospital.

“In 2012, he met a woman at the hospital and then befriended her child,” said Marks. “It is alleged that he showed the child pornography and sexually assaulted the child. It is also alleged that he had inappropriate communication with that child.”

The investigation continued after his arrest for those offences.

Officers analyzed the seized devices in the execution of the search warrant and are alleged to have located child sexual abuse images.

After a news release was issued on January 11, additional victims and witnesses contacted police in relation to the investigation and more charges were laid against Noftall on February 8 and March 5.

He was charged with three counts of sexual interference, one count of accessing child pornography, three counts of sexual assault and two counts of breach of a prohibition order in relation to a Criminal Code Section 161 order.

“Throughout the investigation, it was determined that, in recent years, Mr. Noftall used social media to communicate with some of the young people involved,” said Marks. “On Facebook, his account name is ‘Terrence Lee Noftall’ and, on Instagram, his user name is ‘T. Noftall’ with a vanity name of ‘Terrence N’.”

Marks said it is also alleged that Noftall met one of his victims at the Bee Happy Family Campground in Innisfil.

“It is believed he regularly visited this campground starting in and around 2000,” she added. “The offence dates for the charges laid against Mr. Noftall range from 2000 to 2017.”

Marks said officers are concerned there may be other victims.
