DICKSON, OK -- A Dickson man, who's served as a foster parent for several years, has been arrested for child sexual abuse.

60-year-old Steven Wayne Anglin was arrested Monday night for child abuse and 4 counts of rape.

Anglin is accused of sexually abusing several children, boys and girls from ages 7 to 13.

Dickson Police Chief John Ruiz says the abuse may have taken place over a period of several years.

He says DHS and the Carter County Sheriff's Office are also assisting in the investigation.

Ruiz says, "It's still, like I said, it's early on in the investigation...i do have my report that I will be turning in first thing in the morning. But I feel that's just the beginning of more things that will come out."

Ruiz says Anglin is due in court tomorrow for an initial appearance.
