Capt. Rick Gaddis said one of the child’s family members reported the suspect to the authorities.

Both warrants were served Sept. 19 at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk, where he remains incarcerated as of this publication.

Wilda stated that the suspect and victim were known to one another, and that the alleged crime took place in Dunlap’s home.
