Man held in lewd acts upon a child case

A Beaufort man was arrested Tuesday on a charge that he "inappropriately touched" a 6-year-old family member in February, investigators said.

Abraham Jenkins, 38, was arrested Tuesday during a traffic stop on Detour Road in Seabrook and charged with lewd acts upon a child under 16.

A warrant for his arrest was issued March 24, said Lt. Jim Bukoffsky of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

Jenkins is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond.

If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in jail.
