RCMP Staff Sgt. Wayne Norris says parents should talk with their children about the case.

"With these charges and this person in custody, all I need to stress is that if anyone else is aware of someone who is a victim like this, to report it to the RCMP," said Norris.

Latour is in police custody and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday in Inuvik.
