Chatham-Kent Police have arrested a retired male strings teacher for historical sexual offences involving school aged female children.

Police say the allegations were reported to police earlier this month and following an investigation, members of the Major Crime Unit arrested the suspect.

Claude Eric Trachy, 70 years, of Chatham has been charged with ten counts of sexual assault, five counts of sexual interference and two counts of sexual exploitation dating back to the early 1980’s. He has been released with conditions pending a future court date.

Trachy was self-employed as a strings teacher, teaching primarily violin and viola for over 50 years in Chatham.

Investigators want to ensure that there are no other victims. Anyone with information is urged to contact Constable Shawn Mungar of the Major Crime Unit at 519-436-6600 ext. 288 or via email at [email protected]
