BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

The Blytheville Police Department is investigating an alleged sexual assault of three children.

According to police, the children’s mother said she just found out that a man had sexually assaulted her daughters several times.

This happened when they stayed with a relative on Birch Street where the offender lives.

One of the victims told police the man would take them into the back room and have them do “sexual acts” with another man or himself.

Blytheville police are contacting the Arkansas Crimes Against Children department.
