Ottawa lawyer John David Coon is wanted by Ottawa police for allegations of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching involving a minor.

Police say the alleged incident happened at the victim's home in July 2013 during the performance of his duties as a lawyer.

A warrant for Coon's arrest on the allegations was issued Friday.

He is not charged with any crime.

Police say Coon may have left the country and investigators are asking anyone with information on his current whereabouts to come forward to police.

"The Ottawa police [confirm] Mr. Coon practised family law in the Ottawa area for many years," a media release issued Friday said.

"There are concerns that there could be further victims."

Coon left Ottawa firm late last year, partner says

As of Friday evening, the Law Society of Upper Canada listed Coon as a privately practicing lawyer at Addelman Baum Gilbert on Albert Street.

The society's listing said Coon had no discipline history and no restrictions on his practice.

A profile of Coon on Addelman Baum Gilbert's website has been removed, but a cached version of the website says Coon was called to the Ontario bar in 2006 and that he began to work for the firm in 2011.

"He has a combined child protection defence and criminal defence practice. JD was already a busy, thriving and respected defence lawyer when he joined [the firm] as an associate in 2011," the cached website says.

Reached at the firm on Friday evening, lawyer Jason Gilbert confirmed Coon started working at Addelman Baum Gilbert in late 2011.

Coon left the firm in late November or early December of 2013, Gilbert said, adding he was under the impression Coon was simply "folding up" his law practice and was "not going to be a lawyer any more."

Gilbert said the firm became aware of the police investigation in the last couple of days. He said he has not heard from Coon since he left and that he doesn't know where Coon currently is.
