AZ man arrested on child molestation charges

PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ - A Prescott Valley man has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse after he allegedly molested a young girl over a long period of time.

Prescott Valley police say a 12-year-old girl told investigators she had been molested by 63-year-old Arthur Aguinaga over approximately the past three years in the Prescott Valley area.

Aguinaga was taken into custody the next day and denied involvement in the case.

Police say investigators learned that the suspect was also investigated in 2006 for allegations he molested the current victim's mother. The allegations involved acts in California when that victim was younger.

Aguinaga was booked into the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde for three counts of molestation of a child and continuous sexual abuse of a child.
