EDGECOMBE COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Deputies in one Eastern Carolina county have arrested a man on multiple child sex charges.
Edgecombe County deputies arrested William Bell, of Macclesfield, on Monday.
Deputies said back in late March they received a report of a child sexual assault case and began investigating.
Through forensic interviews, the victim, who is under 12, revealed years of abuse, according to deputies.
The 67-year-old Bell is charged with three counts of statutory sexual offense by an adult and three counts of indecent liberties with a child.
He was jailed on a $300,000 bond.
