A Gastonia man is charged with sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl multiple times in and around Mooresville.

Richard Alan Kruger, 36, is charged with felony statutory rape and nine counts of felony indecent liberties with a child, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim reportedly told a staff member at her school that she had been sexually abused multiple times by a friend of her family who was also living in her home at the time.

During an interview with a detective at the Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center, the victim reportedly identified Kruger as the suspect. Several other witnesses also were questioned, according to a press release.

Kruger was arrested and is being held on a $1 million bond.
