LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A New Albany man has been arrested after Kentucky State Police say he sexually abused two people -- one of whom was a 10-year-old boy.

According to an arrest warrant, the alleged abuse happened overnight at a home in Hardin County, in the hours from Sept. 3 to Sept. 4, 2016.

Police say 22-year-old Nocona Dearborn was staying at the home as a guest. During that time, he allegedly sexually abused a 15-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy.

The 15-year-old allegedly told officers that Dearborn forced him to fondle him, then offered to perform a sexual act. Dearborn also allegedly showed the boy images of naked males he said were ages 13 and 17, and claimed that he had engaged in sexual relations with the boys.

The 10-year-old allegedly told officers that Dearborn fondled him and showed him pornography as well. 

After that encounter, Dearborn turned violent, according to the arrest warrant, confronting the 10-year-old boy in the hallway outside the bathroom. Police say Dearborn threatened him not to tell anyone what happened, pressing him against the wall, putting his hand around his throat and choking him for about five seconds.

Police say Dearborn went on to promise him a set of Bluetooth headphones if he promised not to tell anyone about the sexual encounter.

A warrant was issued for Dearborn's arrest on Thursday, Sept. 22. He was taken into custody earlier this month. He is charged with two counts of first degree sexual abuse, intimidating a participant in the legal process and fourth-degree assault.

He is currently being held in the Hardin County Detention Center.
