Alamance County Sheriff’s deputies arrested William Roger Overman of Way Road, Liberty, on Nov. 3.

The investigation stems from a report filed by the victim’s family about an incident which occurred in the southern part of the county.

Overman is charged with felony first degree rape of a child, two felony counts of first degree statutory sex offense of a child and one felony count of indecent liberties with a child.

Deputies say there may be more victims and additional charges are pending.

Overman was placed in the Alamance County Jail under a $400,000 secured bond.
