WINCHESTER — A city man accused of molesting two young children over an eight-year period was among the people indicted Tuesday by a Winchester Circuit Court grand jury.

For the second time in a month, Hylton Matthew Walker was indicted. The alleged molestation purportedly began in 2012 and involved three girls, now 14, 15 and 16, according to police. Some of the alleged activity purportedly occurred while Walker was babysitting the girls.

The allegations against Walker, a 55-year-old South Loudoun Street resident, include that he raped, groped and showed the girls pornography. The most recent allegation purportedly occurred in August, according to police, who said on Thursday they are investigating whether Walker may have had “inappropriate contact” with other underage girls. Anyone with information is asked to call Winchester Police Department Detective Mala B. Bansal at 540-545-4704. In the latest indictments, Walker was charged with attempted rape, rape, aggravated sexual battery, forcible sodomy, displaying child pornography and two counts of animate object penetration.
