HARRIMAN (WATE) - A Roane County man has been arrested on charges of child rape.

The sheriff's office says David Wales, 45, of Harriman, was arrested Friday.

According to an affidavit, Wales had sexual contact with a nine-year-old girl several times over the last two years.

The victim told authorities she was scared to come forward earlier because Wales threatened he would hurt her mother if she told anyone.

Wales is being held on a $75,000 bond.

He's scheduled to be in court May 6.
