Dean Ferguson, 56, arrested May 19, 2014 on charges of sexual abuse of a child and object rape, both first-degree felonies. 

LOGAN — Cache County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a 56-year-old Millville man suspected of sexually abusing a teenage girl.

Lt. Mike Peterson said Dean Ferguson was arrested Monday on charges of sexual abuse of a child and object rape, both first-degree felonies.

The girl is believed to be an acquaintance of Ferguson’s and Peterson said investigators suspect there may be more victims.

Peterson said sheriff’s investigators were first notified of the allegations a month ago by the Department of Child and Family Services.

Ferguson is being held in the Cache County Jail on a $60,000 bail.

Peterson said investigators believe there may be additional victims involved. An active investigation is being conducted and additional charges may be filed.
