CANTON — The Canton Police Department said Tuesday that a 29-year-old man was arrested last week on charges of molesting three young girls living in the home where he also resided.

Oscar Eduviges Vicente of Canton was charged last Wednesday with three felony counts of child molestation after the mother of the girls called police to report the crimes, said Pacer Cordry, spokesman for the Canton Police Department.

Cordry said detectives went to Vincente’s home at about 3:30 p.m. the day of the arrest and met with the girls’ mother, who also lives in the home.

Detectives began looking into the mother’s claims at the home.

“After a thorough investigation, Vicente was arrested and charged with three counts of child molestation,” Cordry said.

It is not known what relation, if any, the suspect is to the victims, and it appeared he only lived in the home with the mother and three victims, Cordry said.

Vicente remains in custody at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center without bond.

He is being held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Cordry said.
