SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man has been charged in connection with sexually abusing two little boys more than 20 years ago -- but he says he is innocent.

Charles Hendrix was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with first-degree sexual assault and sexual abuse by a parent.

Police say he molested a boy that lived with him in South Charleston.

One of the boys told police the abuse happened while Hendrix thought he was asleep. The other child told police Hendrix fondled him while he played video games at his house -- and that it happened between 30 and 40 times.

Police say the abuse happened between 1988 and 1990.

Hendrix is being held in the South Central Regional Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
