Valle man arrested on 1 count of child molestation

Posted: Updated:

A 44-year-old northern Arizona man was arrested April 9 on suspicion of molesting a 7-year-old girl.

The man lives in Valle, an unincorporated community at the junction of U.S. Highway 180 and State Route 64 south of the Grand Canyon, according to a Coconino County Sheriff's Office news release.

The man, whose name was not released by the sheriff's office to protect the identity of the girl, was arrested while he was at work, according to the release.

A sheriff's sergeant went to the child's school and spoke with the victim and her mother and they identified the suspect, according to the release.

The mother said she believed the suspected molestation occurred when she was away from the child.

The suspect was arrested on one count of child molestation and booked into the Coconino County Detention Facility in Flagstaff.
