YORK, S.C. (AP) - A former Fort Mill day care worker charged with improperly touching two 8-year-old children last year has been arrested on two more charges/

Local media outlets report that 29-year-old Steven Matthew Gentry of Rock Hill was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of third-degree sexual assault in which the victim is under age 14.

York County Sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris says one of the charges stemmed from a 7-year-old boy who told his mother last month that Gentry touched the child inappropriately.

Gentry worked at the Smart Kids’ Child Development Center in Fort Mill until last year, when day care officials learned that he was being investigated.

Police said last April that the Department of Social Services started investigating Gentry in late March 2016. Those charges are still pending.
