Huntsville man arrested on child sex abuse charges

— HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A 42-year-old north Alabama man is facing child sex abuse charges after police say he had sex with a teenage girl he befriended on Facebook.

Police say an anonymous tipster led them to Anthony Wade Sisk, of Hanceville, who was arrested on Thanksgiving.

Authorities say Sisk visited the 15-year-old victim in Huntsville at least twice, and had sex with her at least once.

Sisk is charged with sexual abuse, sodomy, enticing a child and electronic solicitation of a child.

Authorities are working to determine whether Sisk had sexual relationships with any other teens.

Sisk was taken to the Huntsville city jail and is out on bond. It was not known whether Sisk had an attorney.
