An Evansville man was arrested on child molesting charges on Tuesday afternoon.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Ryan Patrick Eagles was arrested after deputies began an investigation following the disclosure of the alleged crime at Holly's House.

Deputies say following an interview with the 13-year-old victim, search warrants were obtained and Eagles was brought to the Sheriff's Command Post.

During an interview, Eagles admitted to engaging in sexual activity with the victim. He also admitted to knowing the age of the victim prior to engaging in the activity.

Sheriff's detectives are continuing their investigation and more victims and charges may be forthcoming.

Eagles was arrested Tuesday afternoon and has made a court appearance.

He was released Wednesday on a $10,000 cash bond.
