A Geneva man and his brother are accused of sex crimes involving at least 12 victims and going back decades.

Police said Tuesday that Sean and David Vickers, ages 44 and 49, sexually abused children across New York State, including in Genesee County. David Vickers is from Stanley, Ontario County, and was arrested by the F.B.I. on Friday, and officials say he was transporting a child with the intent of engaging in sexual activity.

Sean is from Geneva and is already registered as a Level 3 sex offender. He was convicted in 2009 of sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy.

Police released details Tuesday saying that they suspect the brothers are also connected to sex abuse cases in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Canada. If you know a child who has been in contact with these men, police ask you to call your local law enforcement.
