On Oct. 17, the Sedona Police Department arrested 65-year-old Sedona resident John Alfred Roberts on charges of sexually molesting a child. Since then, more alleged victims have stepped forward.

According to SPD, Roberts was charged with three counts each of child molestation, child abuse, sexual conduct with a minor and sexual abuse. The alleged crimes occurred between 1993 and 1995 when the victim was between the ages of 5 to 8. Roberts, who is being held without bond, was known as a family friend.

Since the article on Roberts’ arrest [“Suspect charged with molestation”]  ran in the Oct. 23 edition of the Sedona Red Rock News, Sgt. Lucas Wilcoxson said that nine additional alleged victims have come forward. This includes a Florida woman who alleges that Roberts molested her nearly 40 years ago when she was a child.
