A man accused of molesting three children ages 10, 5 and 3 has been charged with rape, New Castle County Police said Friday.

John Faulk, 58, was also charged with numerous counts of sexual abuse of a child and unlawful sexual contact of a child. He was arrested Thursday, a little more than a week after police issued a press release with photos, asking for the public's help in locating him.

Police have released little information about Faulk's charges, but said the investigation began in March when officers were dispatched to a local hospital for reports of sexual abuse.

Following "numerous interviews," investigators named him as a suspect. Police said Friday that Faulk was arrested following a tip. 

He is currently being held in prison on $160,000 secured bail.
