It will be more than a month until a Drumheller day care worker charged with sexually assaulting young children returns to court.
 
Anthony Piecowye is charged with three counts of sexual assault and three more of sexual interference involving a minor.
 
He was arrested on August 23, a little over a month after Drumheller RCMP received a complaint from a parent of a child attending the day care.
 
Police say their investigation of Piecowye turned up two other alleged victims.
 
The 21 year old has been ordered to appear in Drumheller Provincial Court again on October 27 to plead to the charges. He remains free on his own recognizance.
 
He no longer works at the day care in question.
