The leader of Toronto-based Meeting House Church has been arrested and charged with one account of sexual assault. 

After 25 years of leading the church, Bruxy Cavey was forced to resign in March after an internal investigation into his conduct found he had maintained an "extended" extramarital sexual affair with a member of the congregation. 

The investigation concluded that his conduct "constituted an abuse of Bruxy's power and authority as a member of the clergy and amounted to sexual harassment". 

Cavey had been placed on leave since the accuser brought the allegations to light in late 2021. 

But although Hamilton Police Service have said the alleged victim was an adult female victim, they have not confirmed if it's the same woman who came forward with the allegations last year and believe that "there may be more victims". 

They have encouraged anyone with information to come forward. 

Detective Jeremy Miller of the Hamilton Police Service told The Roys Report website that Cavey voluntarily went to the police station to be charged and was later released. 

Following Cavey's resignation, The Roys Report learned that at least two more people had come forward alleging sexual misconduct by Casey. 

In an email to their congregation, Maggie John, chair of The Meeting House's overseers board said that although the allegations have not yet been investigated they took "these initial allegations very seriously and will respond appropriately as more information is received". 

Casey will appear in court on Monday 27th June.
