BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – A former Peace Corps volunteer has been arrested on federal charges of sexually abusing young girls while serving in South Africa.

Jesse Osmun, of Milford, was arrested Thursday on engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places. Prosecutors said in court that he molested up to five children, some multiple times. Authorities say at least one of victims was as young as five-years-old.

His attorney declined to comment.
