Peoria police have arrested a "family friend" who molested a girl between 2013 and 2015.
Peoria police report that on July 27 they arrested 55-year-old Victo Hugo Perez Pantoja for allegedly having sexual conduct with a child under 10 years old between 2013 and 2015.
Police say the girl recently disclosed to her mother that Pantoja pulled down her pants and touched her in a sexual manner. Her mother contacted police.
During a "confrontation call," Pantoja reportedly said, "I started to touch her, and that's it." He also reportedly said, "We didn't go any further than that."
Pantoja was arrested by police near 75th and Peoria avenues. He made no statement to police after his arrest other that requesting his attorney.
He has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor.
