MASON, Ohio — The Boone County Sheriff's Office arrested a Mason man accused of sexually assaulting three minors.

John Reynolds, 53, is charged with one count of rape and one count of gross sexual imposition. The Warren County Sheriff's Office said Reynolds sexually assaulted three people 15 years old or younger for several years. The victims were known to Reynolds.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office said Reynolds is associated with Boy Scout Troop 194 in Mason. None of the identified victims are members or affiliated with Boy Scouts. Detectives believe there may be more victims.

Prior to the arrest, Reynolds was wanted for the alleged crimes and his whereabouts were previously unknown.

Warren County said they would like to thank the public and all assisting law enforcement agencies for their assistance in finding Reynolds.

Andrew Zahn, Scout Executive and CEO of Dan Beard Council of Boy Scouts of America said in a statement to WCPO 9, "The actions alleged to have been committed by John Reynolds are reprehensible and opposed to everything for which the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) stands for. At this time, we are not aware of any Scouts' involvement and understand from law enforcement that the victims are not members or affiliated with Scouting."

The statement also revealed that when the Dan Beard Council was notified of the investigation and imminent arrest, steps were taken to preclude Reynolds from participation in Scouting.

Detectives are still asking anyone with information related to the investigation to contact the Warren County Sheriff's Office at 513-695-1280 or email
