Sean David Sund - West Jordan Police

Police arrested 45-year-old Sean David Sund Thursday night on five counts of aggravated child sexual abuse.

An 8-year-old victim told police Sund had regular sleepovers at his house for children, mostly from the LDS ward.

That is where she said Sund sexually abused her on multiple occasions.

Sund told police he often had children over to his home and had sleepovers where the children would occasionally sleep in his bed.

He admitted to two sexual abuse incidents similar to the ones the victim described to police.

West Jordan Police said the alleged abuse did not happen during church or a church-sanctioned activity.

Officers said they are concerned there could be more victims.

They are asking anyone with information to call the West Jordan Police Department at (801) 840-4000.
