MARION COUNTY, Fla. - Marion County deputies are worried a man recently arrested and charged with molesting a 15-year-old girl may have done the same thing to other young girls.

Detectives said Aron Galloway, 32, had at least four encounters with the young victim before his arrest Monday.

Deputies said Galloway is facing four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. He's being held in the Marion County Jail.

Investigators said the inappropriate contact happened in Sparr, Fla., over a three-month period. Officials said it was the victim's mother who called and reported the crime.

"The mother did come forward," said Marion County Sheriff's Office spokesman Judge Cochran. "She's the one that reached out to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, and helped us start this investigation. At this point, there is at least one victim."

Police are asking any other potential victims to come forward.
