Man Arrested, Charged With Sexually Assaulting Child


LYNDHURST, Va. (WHSV) -- A Lyndhurst man is in jail after authorities said he committed lewd acts with a child.

James Moses, 23, was arrested at this house on Mount Torrey Road.

He was charged with three counts of forcible sodomy, one count of rape and one count of taking indecent liberties with a child.

All the charges involve the same child.

Officers say they received a tip from the victim's mother which led them to charge Moses.

He also faces past unrelated charges of battery.

"Currently the accused is being held at the Middle River Regional jail on unrelated charges, stemming from a domestic assault which resulted in a probation violation," said Michael Roane, an investigator with the Augusta County Sheriff's Office.

Moses is currently being held without bond and if convicted, he faces life in prison.

The case is still under investigation, according to police.
