CAIRO, GA (WALB) - A 50-year-old Grady county man is in jail after investigators say he forced a teenaged boy to have sex with him.

After his arrest, investigators say another victim came forward and said he was molested by the same man 15 years ago.

Now investigators are concerned more victims are out there, and want them to come forward.

50-year-old Charles Henry Brock was arrested Friday night at his Cairo home at 280 Ridge Road.

"We received a complaint on the 8th of September in reference to a child molestation," said Investigator Daniel Singletary with the Grady county Sheriff's office.

The child's foster parents reported the incident. Investigators say the sexual encounters between the two have been going on over the past year at least.

Now, they worry more victims are out there.

"During our investigation another victim came forward that was molested by the same suspect 15 years ago," said Singletary.

Investigators say Brock admitted to both incidents, the most recent one and the molestation 15 years ago.

"So in that time frame we are scared there may be more victims that need to come forward," he said.

Brock's wife run's a day-care at their home off Ridge Road where she cares for preschool age children. Investigators say don't believe the children in the daycare are victims, but they're continuing to investigate.

Now they're main focus is reaching out to more possible victims with the message that they're not alone, and help is here.

Brock is in the Grady county jail on charges of child molestation, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy, and inciting a child for indecent purposes. He was denied bond on Monday. 

Investigators will present the 15-year-old case to the District Attorney, who will decide whether or not to press charges.
