A man is behind bars for allegedly sexually assaulting a family member, according to South Charleston police.

Officers arrested Kristopher Woodson, 27, on Thursday afternoon. He faces three counts of second-degree sexual assault. Investigators tell 13NEWS he forced his 14-year-old relative to perform oral sex several times.

Police said the most recent incident happened this month, but the other two encounters occurred last August. The incidents reportedly took place at a residence on the 4000-block of Indiana Street, where Woodson was living with two or three other families in South Charleston.

Woodson maintains his innocence.

Investigators said Woodson is no stranger to police or crime, citing several past incidents involving drugs.

Woodson was transported to South Central Regional Jail and his being held on $10,000 bond.
