MURFREESBORO, Tenn., Oct. 10 (UPI) -- A Tennessee man who allegedly admitted sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl has also said she was not his first victim, police said.

Investigators asked other families who have had dealings with Jason Burns to come forward, Gannett Tennessee reported. The 38-year-old Murfreesboro man was arrested last week after allegedly admitting at least one assault and remained in the county jail Tuesday.

"We know there are other victims because he told us during an interview that this was not his first or only victim," Kyle Evans, a spokesman for the Murfreesboro Police Department, said.

Detective Sgt. Wayne Lawson said Burns was interviewed on two separate occasions after police determined the 4-year-old's story was "credible."
