They say 59-year-old John Russell was arrested and charged on July 30 with sexual conduct against a child and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17 years old.
Investigators say Russell is accused of sexually assaulting a young girl over a two year time span from when she was 9 to 11 years old. They say the girl is now 13 years old.
Authorities say they believe there may be other victims and encourage them to come forward.
