Villiers-Farrow, 66, was arrested after an investigation that began when two men came forward in August 2012. At the time, Anne Arundel County Police had recently received information that several children were sexually abused in the Edgewater area.
The men told police that they were victims of sexual abuse from 2000 until 2008, when they were between nine years old and 16. They described Villiers-Farrow as a neighbor.
Villiers-Farrow has been charged with second- and third-degree sex offenses, two counts of perverted practice, two counts of second-degree child abuse, several counts of sex abuse of a minor, and two counts of second-degree assault. He is being held on an $800,000 bond.
