WALNUT CREEK — A 67-year-old Walnut Creek man has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a child more than a decade ago, according to authorities.

The defendant — identified as Kevin Osborne — was arrested on April 30, the Walnut Creek Police Department said in a news release. The alleged acts happened 15 to 20 years ago.

Detectives presented the case to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, which in turn filed two counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 10 and 13 counts of lewd act upon a child.

The defendant remains in custody on $3.3 million bail.

The police department said there may be other victims.

“Given the nature of the allegations and the nature of the case, there may be other individuals whom the same suspect sexually assaulted,” the police department said.

Anyone with information related to the case can contact the police department at 925-943-5844 or the tip line at 925-943-5865.
