SALAMANCA, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Salamanca man was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly sexual contact with several children under the age of 14.

71-year-old Leonard Redeye was charged with six counts of Sexual Abuse in the first degree and three counts in the second degree.

Sheriffs say these charges were the result of an investigation in which it is alleged that Redeye engaged in sexual contact with several children under the age of 11 (first degree - felony) and 14 (second degree - misdemeanor) on multiple occasions since 2002.

Redeye was arraigned in the town of Salamanca court and released on his own recognizance.

He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
