NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — A Newport News man is facing accusations that he sexually assaulted someone in the past when they were a juvenile, police say.

A spokesperson with the Newport News Police Department said 46-year-old Rodney D. Hammond was arrested April 1 and charged with aggravated sexual battery and indecent liberties with a child.

Although it’s unclear when the alleged crime happened, police said Hammond’s charges stem from an investigation into a complaint the department received on April 30, 2018.

Hammond and the victim of the alleged sexual assault know each other, police said.
