NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) -- A summer camp instructor has been charged with multiple counts of rape after an 8-year-old camper was sexually assaulted numerous times over a two-year period, an arrest warrant alleges.

Goodlettsville Police arrested Joshua Webb, 24, Monday evening on seven counts of child rape and one count of aggravated sexual battery on a child. Detectives said he was a martial arts instructor and summer camp counselor at Chris White’s Extreme Martial Arts.

According to an arrest warrant, the 8-year-old victim told a friend on July 29 that Webb, an instructor at the summer camp she attended, “had been touching her on multiple occasions for almost two years.”

When Webb was interviewed by detectives, Goodlettsville Police said he admitted to raping the young victim at the family’s home in November 2018, and approximately one week later. Officers said Webb further confessed to sexually assaulting the child in the back of a bus while en route to field trips between February and August of this year. During the interview, a warrant states, Webb also admitted to sexually assaulting the victim in July while the summer camp group was at the Rivergate Skate Center in Goodlettsville. Goodlettsville Police said Webb also confessed to sexually abusing another child.

Webb was held on $1.85 million bond.
