“We won’t give up and it doesn’t matter how many years go past, these crimes can always be solved,” he said.

“I want victims to feel heartened that we are charging someone this week over incidents that occurred as much as 47 years ago. It is never too late for you to speak to police, to come forward and tell your story or make a report.

“I also want offenders to understand that police won’t give up trying to provide these victims with the justice they deserve.”
