A man accused of multiple sexual assaults made his first court appearance on Monday.

The 55-year-old man cannot be named because of a court-ordered publication ban protecting the identities of the complainants.

He appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.

He has been charged with seven counts each of sexual assault and sexually touching a person under the age of 16. These incidents allegedly took place over a three-year period and there were multiple victims.

According to the charges, the incidents took place between Jan. 1, 2013, and May 15, 2013, in a Central Alberta community.

The man reserved his election and the Crown chose to proceed by indictment on the matter.

He remains in custody as a bail review is underway. His matter was adjourned to May 29 at 9:30 a.m. in Red Deer provincial court.
