“I would like to thank Suffolk Police Department in Suffolk, Va. for their assistance and the public for responding to the media release,” said Ahoskie Police Chief Troy Fitzhugh. “He was arrested in less than 24 hours. We will apply for an extradition to bring Adam Sauls back to Hertford County.”

Fitzhugh said the investigation into the criminal allegations against Sauls began a week ago, after one of the parents of the juvenile victim contacted the Ahoskie Police.
