(DAILY PROGRESS) Authorities arrested a former Keswick scoutmaster Wednesday, charging him with sodomizing a child, and said more charges could follow.

David Brian Watkins, 49, assaulted a Scout in his troop in 2005, and authorities suspect other assaults on the child between 2002 and 2008, said Albemarle County police Lt. Todd Hopwood. Watkins is being held in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail on a charge of forcible sodomy of a juvenile.

The alleged victim is now an adult, but was younger than 13 at the time of the 2005 assault, police said. He contacted police Nov. 21 about the allegations, Hopwood said.
