Glendale man accused of molesting relative in 2011 incident

GLENDALE, AZ - A Glendale man with a prior history of sexual conduct with a minor was booked into jail on charges stemming from a 2011 incident involving a young family member.

According to police, the suspect was 47 years old and the victim was 9 at the time of the alleged incident.

In June of this year the victim told someone what had happened to her in April of 2011.

During the forensic interview, the girl said she was at the suspect’s house in Glendale when he called her into a room he referred to as the “man cave.”

There he had the girl sit on his lap in front of a computer and started to show the girl photographs of naked women “doing stuff” on his computer. The victim was also shown a pornography video, according to police.

The victim told police that the suspect asked where she was comfortable having him touch her and he placed a hand on her chest, then moved his hand down closer to her breasts.

She said she tried to get away but the suspect held her down and ultimately moved his hand under her clothes and touched her breast.

The victim was able to get away when the suspect’s wife called for the girl. He told her not to tell anyone what had happened as she left the home.

Police noted that a criminal records check uncovered a report from 2006 in which the suspect was arrested and booked into jail for sexual abuse and sexual conduct with a minor with a different victim.

This time he faces charges of kidnapping, sexual abuse and furnishing obscene material to a minor.

ABC15 is not naming the suspect to protect the victim's identity.
