A South Salt Lake man was arrested and charged with multiple felonies Wednesday alleging he sexually abused two young girls who lived in an apartment above him over a period of several months.
Richard James Hitt, 47, was arrested by Wednesday morning after a three-month investigation.
In November, police received a report that Hitt had been abusing two sisters, ages 16 and 10, between July and November. Hitt had been living in a basement apartment of a home, and had befriended the family that lived on the floor above him, according to police. Hitt had been living there since March 2009.
