---- — A Plymouth man was being held in Chenango County jail Sunday on $75,000 bail on felony sex charges, authorities said.

Delos J. Holmes, 36, was charged Friday with first-degree criminal sexual act and second-degree rape, both felonies, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, state police at Norwich said in a media release.

Holmes was arrested after an investigation into alleged inappropriate sexual contact with two children under the age of 15, the release said.

Holmes was arraigned in the Guilford Town Court and was sent to Chenango County jail in lieu of $75,000 cash bail.

The investigation is continuing.
