A Suffolk man has been charged with four felonies after an investigation that started on Sunday.

Nicholas John Butler, 21, was arrested Monday and charged with four counts of carnal knowledge of a child 13 to 15 years old, according to a city press release. He is being held at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

Police were notified on Sunday of “an alleged sexual relationship between a juvenile female and an adult male,” the press release stated. Preliminary investigation determined they had initially met on social media and then in person on multiple occasions from Aug. 15 and Aug. 25, the press release stated.

The investigation remains ongoing, and additional charges may be forthcoming.
