A Navarre man was arrested yesterday and charged with 15 counts of capital sexual battery.
Edward Scott Foster, 73, was arrested at the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office after investigators obtained a signed warrant for his arrest.
In the warrant, investigators outlined explicit testimony where the suspect sexually abused multiple victims from 1972 to 1997. The victims at the time were between the ages of 5 and 8 years old, according to the sheriff’s office arrest report. Foster is being held without a bond.
Detectives believe there may be other victims in this case and are asking residents who may have information about Foster or his activities to contact the sheriff’s office or Crime Stoppers at 437-STOP.
