A Loudoun County man believed to have sexually abused a child over the last several months has been arrested by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, according to authorities.

  Earl Bufford Sandloin, 72, of Buffalo Run Ln, Centreville, was arraigned Friday on felony charges stemming from repeated sexual assaults on a child under 13 years of age, authorities said.

DiBenedetto said investigators will look into the possibility of additional victims.

"One of the concerns we have is that often this doesn't occur in a vacuum," he said.
