A Fredonia man has been arrested on charges of having sexual contact with a victim under the age of 11.

State Police say it happened at a home in the Town of Pomfret. Troopers found the suspect, Scott Pierce, on Third Street in Dunkirk and say he fought with officers when they tried to take him into custody.

Pierce was brought under control with the help of Dunkirk Police and charged with first degree criminal sexual act and resisting arrest.

Investigators are working to determine if Pierce has other alleged victims and ask anyone with information to call The New York State Police at (585) 344-6200.
