Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) - Kershaw County deputies have arrested a man who they say sexually assaulted a six-year-old girl.

Timothy Joel Witkop, 31, is charged with criminal sexual conduct first-degree with a victim under the age of 11.

On December 15, deputies say the girl's mom told investigators about Witkop's sexual activities with the girl. An investigator talked with the suspect, who reportedly told them he'd had inappropriate sexual activity with the girl since she was five-years-old.

Based on the interview and other evidence, officers then took him into custody. He's currently at the Kershaw County Detention Center where he remains pending a bond hearing.
