WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. - Police say a West Vancouver man involved in youth programs has been charged in two separate alleged sexual assaults on a teenage girl.

Officers say they received information earlier this month about a man who sexually assaulted an intoxicated youth at his home in early January.

Police say evidence from that investigation suggests there was a previous sexual assault in similar circumstances.

Investigators say two charges of sexual assault and one charge of breach of recognizance have been approved against 28-year-old Pooria Mohebbi.

Officers say Mohebbi has been a volunteer and employee for youth programs in the community and they are trying to contact others who may have interacted with him.

Mohebbi was released on bail with a number of conditions and is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
