PRESCOTT – The owner and operator of a long term care home in Augusta Township is facing an additional charge in relation to an ongoing sexual assault investigation.

Grenville County O.P.P. charged Robert Lunnie, 72, last week (May 31) with one additional count of sexual assault.

Lunnie runs the Green Acres Retirement Home on McCrea Road, about 11 kilometers north of Prescott.

He had previously been charged with four counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual exploitation.

Grenville County O.P.P. and the Grenville County Crime Unit started an investigation in late March after alleged assaults on current and former residents were reported to police.

Lunnie appeared in a Brockville court on Wednesday (June 6) for a bail hearing.
