Police are investigating after they say a man sexually abused several children.

Last week, Winchester Police charged 26-year-old Michael Raad with seven counts of sexual abuse and two counts of sodomy, and they say more charges are possible.

Raad is now being held in the Clark County Detention Center. Police say his victims were between the ages of six and 10 years old.

Winchester Police say they received reports from social services about Raad sexually abusing four children between August and October.

Police say Raad had visited the children at their school in Clark County, but they emphasize none of the alleged abuse happened on school property.

Police say the crimes happened at a home in Winchester.

"All the victims that we are aware of at this time are related somehow," Winchester Police Detective Harold Jones said. "They're either acquaintances, family, or friends of family or something to where they'd have contact in a setting like that."

Clark County Schools released a letter to parents soon after Raad was arrested.

They reiterated that none of the alleged abuse happened on school property.

Winchester Police say this is an ongoing investigation. They say possibly two, or up to six other children might be victims as well.

Raad was arraigned Monday, and he's scheduled to be back in court next week for a hearing.
