An Abbotsford man who coaches gymnastics in Langley has been charged with sexual interference.

John William Henry, 32, was arrested last Thursday (March 6) and has been remanded in custody. He next appears in court on Friday, March 14.

Henry was coaching with the Langley Gymnastics Foundation at the time of the alleged incident.

Cpl. Holly Marks, media relations officer with the Langley RCMP, said police began their investigation last Thursday after receiving a report alleging inappropriate conduct by Henry.

The Langley RCMP's serious crime unit is handling the continuing investigation and would like to hear from anyone with information that could further their efforts, Marks said.

She said further details about the alleged incident will not be released because the matter is now before the courts.

Marks said the Langley RCMP's client support and victim services is available to provide support and guidance to those impacted by the investigation.
