Former gymnastics coach Michel Arsenault, arrested Wednesday at his Edmonton home, is facing charges for sexual assaults in Montreal in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Arsenault is charged with three counts of sexual assault and four counts of assault, against a total of six victims, according to the warrant issued for his arrest. The earliest charge is for assault, spanning from 1983 to 1987, and the most recent is for sexual assault, alleged to have occurred between 1991 and 1993. The former coach faced allegations of sexual assault last December, when former gymnasts shared stories of abuse with Radio-Canada Sports. At the time, Arsenault operated Edmonton gym Champions Gymnastics with his wife Valérie Oudin.
