TROY, N.Y. -- Police in Troy arrested a man they said sexually abused a nine year old girl and now, there may be other victims out there.

Frances Sousis, 60, was charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Officers said Sousis abused the child over a prolonged period of time.

And while Sousis is being held in jail, police said there is a concern that there may be other children who have been exposed to him.

Police said they understand it is hard to broach such a difficult topic with a child, but they are offering resources to help.

"We will hook them up with professionals,” Troy Police Department Captain John Cooney said. “We will actually conduct those interviews with their children in a trained, professional manner."

If you fear your child has had contact with Sousis, please contact Troy Police at the 518-270-4426.
