A man is accused of forcing a child to perform sexual acts on him by claiming it was "magic" that would "make mommy well," a criminal complaint states.
The allegation is just one of the crimes that police in Bluefield, W.Va., said were committed by James Irvin, 56, according to WVVA.
Irvin was arrested on Monday and charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse and five counts of sexual assault against three victims ages 3, 9 and 13.
The victims lived in Irvin's home along with their mother and stepfather, according to the station.
The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports that Irvin allegedly referred to himself as a "Magical Warlock."
Police also said Irvin is a practicing pagan and Wiccan.
