FRANKLIN (AP) — A Tennessee music producer has been arrested and accused of sexually assaulting two children.

Samuel Sylvester, 50, was indicted Friday by a Williamson County grand jury on seven counts of statutory rape by an authority figure, seven counts of sexual battery by an authority figure, aggravated sexual battery and two counts of rape of a child, news outlets reported.

Per his LinkedIn profile, Sylvester runs Leumas Music Productions, which he originally started in Minnesota in 1995, the Tennessean reported.

Franklin police officials said they began investing Sylvester after a client he worked with came forward and accused him of having sexual relations with two children, ages 12 and 16, in 2009 and 2010.

Police spokesman Lt. Charles Warner said detectives are "concerned there could be other victims." Anyone with information should call the department, Warner said.

Sylvester's arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 18. It's unclear whether he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
