Wicomico County officials say a Salisbury man is facing more than a dozen charges related to sexually abusing a child over a three year period.

According to police, Vincent Tubbs was indicted on Tuesday and now faces 17 charges. The 56-year-old allegedly “engaged in multiple instances of sex abuse and sexual contact” with the victim. Officials say the abuse happened at the Salisbury YMCA and a private home in the Salisbury area between the years 2001 to 2004.

The charges Tubbs faces include sex abuse of a minor, third degree sex offense, fourth degree sex offense, sexual contact and false imprisonment. Tubbs will have a bond review in Circut Court.
