John Charles Villiers-Farrow, 66, was taken into custody on Wednesday (14Nov12). He is accused of sexually abusing several children over a number of years.
Two unnamed men claim they were sexually abused as children from 2000 until 2008 by a neighbour in Edgewater, Maryland. That man has been identified as Villiers-Farrow, according to TV network NBC 4 in Washington.
He surrendered to police on Wednesday and his bail was reduced from an initial $800,000 (£500,000) to $250,000 (£156,250), the Baltimore Sun reported.
He faces counts of perverted practice, child abuse, sex abuse of a minor and assault charges.
Villiers-Farrow is still in custody.
