Cumberland Grand Jury Indicts Crossville Man On Child Rape Charges

The Cumberland County Grand Jury has indicted a Crossville man on child rape and aggravated sexual battery charges.

John Raymond Waltz, 66 of Ivy Ave., was arrested last October. Crossville Police responded to Cumberland Medical Center after a 4-year-old was brought in by the child’s mother after reporting something happened at a neighbor’s home. The child was left at the neighbor’s for about 30 minutes until a sibling returned home from school.

Waltz reportedly gave a statement to police which led to the charges. He has either been in the hospital or jail since the incident was reported.
