A 64-year-old West Point woman is charged with molesting a boy.

According to West Point Police Chief Avery Cook, Margretta Ware Chambers was arrested Wednesday evening after the mother of the juvenile, whose age is not being released, signed an affidavit detailing the alleged molestation.

Cook said the incident happened recently and that investigators are doing interviews to try to determine more details. Police became involved when the boy alerted his mother and she brought him to police.

Chambers has a prior record of misdemeanor traffic-related offenses but "nothing serious like this," Cook said.

No bond has been set.
