(BEDFORD) - A Salem man was arrested on a warrant for sexual battery after he allegedly groped and injured an 88-year-old woman.

Police arrested 77-year-old Charles King on Friday on charges of sexual battery and battery. He posted a $755 cash bond Saturday.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court I probable cause affidavit, on September 18, while King was at the woman's apartment, he allegedly grabbed her, forced her onto a bed, pulled her pants down and molested her.

The woman told King to stop numerous times, but he refused.

After the incident the woman was taken to Indiana University Health Hospital emergency room for treatment. While there the woman along with her power of attorney reported the incident to Bedford Police Detective Kevin Jones.

Officers then went to speak to King, who told them he went to the woman's home to asked if he could play with her breasts. King told police the woman didn't say yes or no, so he went ahead and groped her.

When asked if the touching continued, King responded, "probably did."
