CROSS COUNTY, AR (WMC) - An Arkansas woman turned herself in amid reports that she raped children.

Cross County Sheriff's Office said it received a report that Veronica Blake sexually assaulted three children since July 2017.

Deputies investigating the case determined that a total of nine children were victimized.

Arkansas State Police is now assisting in the investigation.

The ages of the children have not been released. It's only known that they are under 18.

Blake is charged with six counts of rape, seven counts of computer or child pornography, and one count of sexual indecency with a minor. She remained in jail Thursday night, according to a detective with the sheriff’s office.

"Any time a person mistreats a child they need to be dealt with,” said Wynne resident Donny Lopp. “I don't care who they is, or how old."

Word of the arrest spread throughout Wynne. Loop says hearing about this case is a reminder to parents to keep a watchful eye on your children.

"If it's not your child or someone else’s child, they always come to an adult for protection,” Loop said.

Blake's bond was set at $100,000.

Cross County Sheriff's Deputies want to know if there are any more victims out there.

They are asking for anyone with helpful information to contact the Cross County Sheriff's Office at 870-238-5700.
