More child sexual assault charges have been filed against a Thomasville man after a third victim came forward, Rowan County sheriff’s investigators said Wednesday.
Kevin Scott Rose, 34, was initially charged last week with five counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, and eight counts of first-degree sexual offense of a victim under 13. Rose was jailed on $1.5 million bail.
Those charges were in connection with sexual assaults of two children when Rose lived in eastern Rowan County, investigators said.
This week, Rose was charged with five more counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, three more counts of first-degree sex offense and one count each of first-degree rape and incest. Rose was given an additional $500,000 bail on those charges, which involve a third victim, investigators said.

The latest charges involve incidents at Rose’s home from 2009 to 2013, the sheriff’s office said.
The cases against Rose came to light after a girl heard a presentation called “Speak Up, Be Safe” by the Terrie Hess House Child Advocacy Council, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said. The girl came forward at school to report what happened to her, investigators said.
