A 58-year-old man is being held on a charge of touching a child for lustful purposes after police say he "touched" a 6-year-old girl.
Parents reported Monday that their 6-year-old girl told them she had been touched, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said. Through the investigation and interviews, deputies identified the 58-year-old man as the suspect, Peterson said.
A warrant was obtained for the man and Long Beach police arrested him during a traffic stop Tuesday.
The man is being held at the Harrison County jail on a $150,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner.
