Man charged with sexual touching of a 15-year-old girl


    A 57-year-old Gasparillo man has been charged with one count of sexual touching of a child.

    The 15-year-old female victim was asleep in the living room of her home on May 30th when she was allegedly awoken by a man who was sexually assaulting her.

    The girl later told her mother who reported the incident to the Southern Division Child Protection Unit.

    The suspect is said to have gone into hiding, but was arrested yesterday with the assistance of the Special Operations Response Team.

    He is due to appear before a San Fernando Magistrate today.
