RAVENSWOOD, WV -

A man is accused of sexually assaulting his 7-year-old daughter on three separate occasions, according to Chief Lance Morrison, of the Ravenswood Police Department.

Officers arrested Timothy Paul Charlton, 31, Thursday night at approximately 8:30 p.m. at his home in Ravenswood.

Charlton faces three counts of sexual assault of the first degree.

The victim's mother contacted an officer on August 10, claiming that her daughter was sexually assaulted by Charlton, according to Morrison.

On August 15, the girl was brought to a CPS office in Ripley, where she stated that her father had engaged in sexual acts by inserting his penis in her mouth on three separate occasions.

Three officers conducted the investigation.

Charlton was arraigned Thursday evening. He is being held at South Central Regional Jail on $300,000 bond.
