Police said an investigation continues because they believe Evans may have victimized other people. 

“I take all criminal investigations personally, but alleged criminal acts being done to a child, becomes truly devastating and we will use all available resources to bring justice to the victim[s] in this case,” said Lieutenant P. Brooks, CID Commander.

Evans was booked into the Fulton County Jail.
