PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) -- A Pawtucket man has been arraigned on child molestation charges after three alleged victims came forward.
Police tell us Samuel Cooper, 41, turned himself in Wednesday. He's facing a dozen charges of second-degree child molestation in connection with incidents involving relatives.
Two of the alleged victims, who are now adults, told police they were molested by Cooper when they were younger, but never came forward. An 8-year-old relative recently told the women she was molested as well, and all three reported the crimes.
Cooper was held on surety bail following his arraignment.
