On Sept. 3, one victim, who is now an adult, reported that she was sexually assaulted by Black. Detectives launched an investigation and identified a second victim, also an adult, who said she was also sexually assaulted by Black.

>> Crime reporter Glenn Counts is digging into Black's past with the city and learning more about the crimes he's accused of and will have a full report on Eyewitness News at noon.

Investigators said the sexual assaults began when the victims were children and continued over a 22-year span between 1996 and 2018.

Authorities arrested Black Thursday morning in Myrtle Beach, and CMPD detectives are working to have him extradited back to Mecklenburg County.

Channel 9 has learned that Black was immediately been suspended from the Citizens Review Board following his arrest.
