MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) -

A woman is facing sexual abuse charges in Elmore County in a case police say involves a young female family member.

Carole Power, 62, of Enterprise, is charged with sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old in a case out of Millbrook.

Millbrook Police Chief P.K. Johnson says the department received a complaint in May in reference to a delayed report of sexual abuse involving a child. The alleged offenses occurred between December 2011 and January 2012 and were reported on May 28.

Johnson didn't elaborate on the delay from when the reported abuse occurred to when it was reported.

After completing their initial investigation and consulting with the District Attorney's Office, Johnson says Millbrook PD found enough probable cause to issue a warrant for Power. She was arrested June 8 and has since made bond.

Johnson said that due to the nature of the case, he could not release any other details. The matter is still under investigation. The case will be presented to a grand jury in October.
