State Police are exploring additional charges against a Cabell County man that they say preyed on young girls in a trailer park.
Cecil Wight, 65, of Huntington was arrested Tuesday afternoon at a trailer he owns in Bim, which is along W.Va. 85 near Wharton in Boone County.
Sgt. Andy Perdue said the mothers of two 6-year-old girls told troopers Monday that Wight had touched their children inappropriately. He said a third victim, a 9-year-old girl, has since come forward.
Perdue said there could be more victims in the case. The victims say the alleged abuse has been going on since last summer, he said.
"One of his last comments to me was that he loves looking at little girls' butts, 'They're so cute,'" Perdue said Thursday.
He said Wight, who lives in Huntington, frequently drove to the mobile home in Bim and spent extended amounts of time there.
Perdue said residents were "irate."
He said someone broke windows in both Wight's vehicle and mobile home. Wight's belongings also had been tampered with.
Troopers had no suspects in that incident.
The mother of one of the 6-year-old victims told troopers Monday that her daughter told her "Cecil the old man" had been taking pictures of her while she changed clothes in his home and had touched her genitals on several occasions, according to a criminal complaint filed in Boone Magistrate Court.
Trooper E.B. McClung went to Wight's home to speak with him about the incident. Wight allowed the officer to search his home.
