Child molest case reported to BPD

Bloomington detectives are investigating a report of child molestation involving an 11-year-old girl and a man that was known to the family.  

The victim told police that in April 2012, a 39-year-old male known to her family was at her residence on the north side of Bloomington, and the two were watching a movie, BPD Sgt. John Kovach said.

The man reportedly had the victim sit on his lap and proceeded to fondle her, Kovach said. The girl told him to stop, and she left the area.

Kovach said it appears the touching was an isolated incident.

The girl was interviewed Friday, and Kovach said police have not yet spoken with the suspect.
