A West Union man has been arrested for the alleged sexual abuse of a child.

32-year-old Walter Maclaren was taken into custody Sunday night (April 29), charged with Second Degree Sexual Abuse of a Victim Under 12 Years Old.

The charge stems from an investigation into a 911 call that police received earlier Sunday evening. During the investigation, Maclaren was arrested.

No other information was released. The investigation continues.
