MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A Montgomery man is under arrest and charged with multiple, incestuous sex crimes against children.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's arrest database, Johnny Frank Caphart is charged with two counts of incest with a minor and two counts of first degree statutory rape.

Jannah Bailey with Child Protect tells WSFA 12 News in her 13 years with the organization, it's one of the most difficult cases in which she's ever been involved.

Bailey says three children who were allegedly abused spent hours with Child Protect officials Tuesday and Wednesday. She says each of the victims is female and it appears the abuse has been ongoing for 5 to 7 years.

Bailey adds that there may be other victims and encourages anyone who suspects child sexual abuse to report it immediately.

Caphart is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a bond of $1.075 million.
