An unnamed 54-year-old man from northern Switzerland confessed to the sexual assault of 114 disabled people in nine institutions over 28 years. Most of the facilities where the alleged incidents occurred are in Bern canton.

Almost all of the victims were male. 42 were older than 18, one was a year old at the time of the alleged assault. Police said the man told investigators that some of the abuses occurred several times on the same day.

The statute of limitations has passed for most of the offenses, authorities said, but the man can be prosecuted for 33 cases.
