Bonifay Molester

Northwest Florida authorities say they've taken a child predator off the streets.

Authorities fear there's additional victims who are afraid to report possible contact with the suspect. Russell Dale Knight Senior is charged with one-count of lewd or lascivious molestation, three-counts of child abuse and four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Some of the victims are as young as twelve.

Investigators say Knight befriended the children and brought them to his residence in Holmes County's New Hope Community, just south of the Geneva county line.

Authorities would like to speak to other possible victims. If you can help in this case, contact the Holmes County Sheriff's Department at 850-547-3681.

Knight remains behind bars at the Holmes County Jail under a $128,000 bond.
