Matthew Jerome Smalls, 28, of North Charleston

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — A Lowcountry man is accused of forcing himself on a four-year-old girl in Charleston.

Matthew Jerome Smalls, 28, of North Charleston is charged with criminal sexual conduct with minor under 12. An incident report listed him as a manager at the Burger King on Sam Rittenberg Blvd.

The victim’s mother said the incident took place in October. Authorities were notified in November with Smalls being arrested Wednesday, December 14.

We dug into Smalls’ background where we learned he was booked into the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center for ill treatment of a child in June 2014. He was given a $25,000 bond for that charge.

Meantime, a bond hearing has not yet been set on his current charges.
