DELAWARE CO., Ind. (WANE) - A 60-year-old man has been arrested on multiple counts of child molestation, rape, and incest, according to the Randolph County Sheriff's Department.

Randolph County Sheriff's Department Cpt. Tom Pullins said Douglas E. Hunt Jr., 60, Lynn, admitted to several accusations against him. Detectives received a report of a child molestation on Jan. 29 and Hunt was identified as the suspect, according to Pullins.

Thursday, police located Hunt in his truck on S.R. 67 near I-69 in Daleville, just east of Anderson. He was taken into custody and interviewed by police.

Hunt has been initially charged with incest, 10 counts of child molestation, and 5 counts of rape.

No other details were available.

Hunt is being held without bond in the Randolph County Jail.
