A Pleasantville man is accused of sexually assaulting two children last year, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Sherron Scott, 32, was arrested Friday by members of the Prosecutor’s Office and the Egg Harbor Township Police Department after a months-long investigation.

He was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault, two counts of sexual assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

A detention hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
