OROVILLE, Calif. – Butte County Deputies arrested 34-year-old Kyle Smith, of Oroville, on multiple counts on sexual abuse of children. The arrest was made where Smith was living on the 1100 block of Cherokee Road in Oroville, according to investigators.

Detectives say they started the investigation in July. During their investigation, two children said that Smith had sexually abused them, and a third child said Smith had attempted to inappropriately touch them, according to investigators.

Tuesday was another sunny and unseasonably warm to hot day for much of northern California. It was much like Monday, except the wind was stronger, and the wind will be much stronger through much of the next week.
