WINCHESTER — An alleged child molester and an assault suspect were among the 24 people indicted by a Winchester Circuit Court grand jury on Tuesday.

The alleged molestation purportedly began in 2013 and involved three girls, now 14, 15 and 16, according to police. The allegations against Hylton Matthew Walker include groping the girls, forcing one to perform oral sex on him, exposing himself to one of them and showing them pornography. Walker, 55, of South Loudoun Street in Winchester, was charged with aggravated sexual battery.

The alleged assault occurred at a home in the 100 block of Holiday Drive on Jan. 25, according to police Officer Jonathan Ramos's criminal complaint. He wrote that a man and woman said Jose Luis Castillo broke into their home and assaulted them after accusing the man of sexually abusing Castillo's niece. The man had wounds on his face and head and the woman was bleeding from the back of her neck. Both had to be hospitalized. Ramos said Castillo had called police about three hours before the alleged assault to accuse the man of molesting his niece. Castillo, 35, of the 1000 block of Heritage Place in Fredericksburg, was charged with breaking and entering and two counts of malicious wounding.
