Former youth club worker admits indecent assault on boy in 1960s
A FORMER youth club worker has admitted three counts of indecent assault on a boy in the late 1960s.
Malcolm Down, 75, from Saltash, appeared at Truro Crown Court on Monday where he pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 16.
Police previously said the incidents are linked to a single victim.
The initial complaint was made in July last year by a man who attended the Kenwanne Youth Club back in the late 1960s.

The club building, which was then based at the junction of Glebe Avenue and Callington Road, Saltash, has since been demolished.
It is understood Down worked at the club for around two decades before retiring in the mid 1980s.
Police were keen to stress the investigation had no links to any current youth club in Saltash or of clubs which had a similar name in later years.
Down was released on bail until December 10 when he will be sentenced at Exeter Crown Court.
