(MITCHELL) - A Mitchell man is facing charges of sexual battery, child molesting and criminal confinement after being accused of assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

On Monday, Lawrence County Police arrested 65-year-old Carl "Brent" Toliver.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court II probable cause affidavit, on Friday, August 11th the mother of the teen went to the Lawrence County Police Department to report the incident. The girl's mother told police she confronted Toliver after what he did to her daughter and she says Toliver admitted to what he had done.

A detective interviewed the woman and contacted the Department of Child Services, who say they received a report about the incident from Mitchell Community School officials.

The girl told authorities that she had spent the night with her best friend at her best friend's grandmothers house sometime around July 4th and that is where the assault happened.

The girl told authorities she was playing on her phone during the early morning hours in her friend's room after her friend had fallen asleep. The grandmother had left for work and the girls were in the house with her friend's uncle and Toliver.

The girl says Toliver came in the room where the girls were shortly after the grandmother had left.

The girl told authorities Toliver then took her phone, shut it off and set it down and then picked up the girl in his arms.

The girl asked Toliver multiple times what he was doing and he would not reply. He then carried her into his bedroom where the girls says he asked her if she wanted to take her pants off.

The girl told Toliver no. Toliver, who was wearing only boxer shorts, climbed on top of her and began touching her between her legs and up her shirt.

The girl told police she attempted to kick Toliver in the knee and got up after he got off of her.

Toliver then told the girl that she had gave him permission to touch her - which she did not. He then told her if she told anyone he would get in serious trouble.
