(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus man was arrested on five counts of child molesting.


Police arrested 61-year-old Bruce Giggy, a former volleyball coach, after police say he molested three different children younger than 14 between 1999 and 2009.

Giggy is being held in the Bartholomew County Jail on $175,000 bond.

According to Bartholomew Superior Court 1 records, Giggy is accused of fondling the victims and attempting to have the victims fondle him.

He was arrested after two of the victims contacted police and then told them about the third victim.

Giggy was a volleyball coach for the freshman team at Columbus North High School from 2005 to 2009. He then left that position to become the varsity volleyball coach at Columbus Christian School. According to school officials his coaching position ended by mutual agreement last fall when Columbus Police informed the school of their investigation.

Police say no one from either school was involved in the investigation and there are no additional victims.
