Edmonton Man Charged with Sex Crimes Against Teen Boys
A 52-year-old Edmonton man has been charged with sexual offences against two teenage boys, and police believe there may have been other victims.
Between July and November, the man befriended two boys, aged 13 and 14, Edmonton police said in a news release. He eventually gained their trust before allegedly engaging in sexual acts with them in a private area of a city business.
Police believe the accused met his alleged victims in a north Edmonton mall.
Majed "Mark" Zeitouni, 52, has been charged with three counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching. He also faces charges of uttering threats and breach of probation.
Zeitouni is the registered owner of Flowers by Mark Ltd., a flower shop located in Northgate Centre at 97th Street and 137th Avenue.
"The EPS is releasing a photo of the accused, as it believes there may be additional complainants," police said.
Other potential complainants are urged to contact police at 780-423-4567, #377 from a mobile phone, or to contact Crime Stoppers.
