Bloomington Police Investigating Child Molestation

Last updated on Tuesday, February 5, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington detectives are investigating a report of child molestation involving an 11-year-old girl and a man that was known to the family.

Bloomington Sgt. John Kovach says the girl told police that in April 2012, a 39-year-old male known to her family was at her home on the north side of Bloomington, and the two were watching a movie when the man reportedly had the girl sit on his lap and proceeded to fondle her.

Kovach says the girl told him to stop, and she left the room. Kovach says it appears the touching was an isolated incident.

The girl was interviewed Friday, and Kovach says police have not yet spoken with the suspect and the case remains under investigation.
