June 8 (UPI) — Canadian police charged Frank Stronach, an auto parts tycoon and former owner/caregiver, with rape, assault and forcible confinement, following allegations dating back to the 1980s and lasting until last year.

The 91-year-old founder of auto parts maker Magna International was released on bail after being arrested on Friday.

“The police are appealing to the public to come forward if they have any relevant information.”

The alleged attacks reportedly took place in Aurora, a suburban community north of Toronto, Ontario.

Stronach has retained prominent Canadian defense lawyer Brian Greenspan

“Mr. Stronach categorically denies the allegations of impropriety that have been leveled against him,” Greenspan it said in a statement on Friday.

“He looks forward to the opportunity to fully answer the charges and to preserve his legacy as a philanthropist and as an icon of the Canadian business community.”
