An East Providence man is charged with child molestation and police believe there may be other victims.

61-year-old William Christensen has been charged with two counts of second degree child molestation on a child under the age of 14.
Christensen was arrested on June 26th at his home in East Providence.

After interviewing the victim, police determined there could be other victims out there.

“Any children who had contact with him—we are asking that the parents do contact us and give us the opportunity to speak with them or speak with your child… if you find that something may have happened that was inappropriate to contact us immediately,” says East Providence Police Detective, Michael Spremulli.

Christensen was released on bail and is expected to be in court next month.
