The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office arrested a Hixson man accused of sexually assaulting a minor.

Wendell J. Duncan, 44, is charged with rape and aggravated statutory rape.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by Channel 3, the mother of the victim contacted deputies saying Wendell Duncan sexually assaulted her daughter seven years ago and again recently.

Duncan turned himself in to authorities and stated to detectives that "he admits to whatever (the victim) accuses him of doing," according to the affidavit.

Detectives also recovered text messages between Duncan and a friend in which Duncan admitted to the acts and stating he was going to do his time in jail.

Duncan is being held in the Hamilton County Jail on a $450,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court May 14.
