A 44-year-old unemployed Elgin man who babysat local children has been charged with criminal sexual assault of a three-year-old boy.
Martin Todd Doar, of 2179 Heath Pond Road, Elgin, is in custody in Richland County, a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department spokesman said.
The spokesman said that authorities believe Doar may have also assaulted additional children and are investigating.
The three-year-old boy told his mother what had allegedly happened, officials said. The child has been interviewed by a specialist in handling child assault cases, officials said.
No bond has been set for Doar in the initial charge. He does not have a lawyer yet, officials said.
