WATERTOWN, TN (WSMV)- A 36-year-old man is facing child sex crimes after the assault of a child under the age of 10.
Edward Alan Kuiper, of Watertown, was charged with aggravated rape of a child and unlawful possession of a weapon on April 10.
The arrest of Kuiper stems after allegations of sexual abuse were reported by the child’s mother.
“Anytime you open up an investigation involving sex crimes against minor children, it’s going to be an extremely emotional time for everyone who is involved,” Sheriff Robert Bryan said in a statement on Monday.
Bryan said its an “ongoing investigation” and they are “confident” more charges will be brought Kuiper because there are more victims.
“Our detectives are working hard to make sure Kuiper is held accountable for his inexcusable actions,” Bryan said.
Kuiper is being held on an over half a million-dollar bond at Wilson County Jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
