ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - Detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Special Victim's Section arrested a 59-year-old man Monday on five sexual abuse related charges.

Dennis Alan Ray was arrested and booked into the St. Johns County Sheriff's detention facility on three counts of capital sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

In May 2014, the Florida Department of Children and Families received an anonymous complaint about possible abuse and began an investigation.

During the investigation, detectives determined the victim was sexually abused by Ray over the course of several years.

Ray is being held with no bond for the five charges.
