Sheriff Roger L. Harris announced the arrest of Edward Alsop, 49 of Spotsylvania for the June 15, 2014 sexual battery of a juvenile victim at the Indian Acres campground in Spotsylvania County.

On June 15, 2014 Spotsylvania County Deputies responded to a 911 call to the Indian Acres Campground, located in the 6400 block of Morris Road.

Deputies, along with security personnel, began a sweep of the area, looking for a vehicle that matched the description given by the victim and his brother, (who had witnessed the suspect jump into a pickup truck and leave the scene).
