A 59-year-old Thurston County man was arrested Monday on two counts of first-degree child molestation, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office.
Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said the alleged incident occurred Feb. 26 at the child’s home. The girl’s father invited a friend, the 59-year-old man, over to the house.
While the father was on the phone, the man allegedly took the girl, 6, into her bedroom, Ziesemer said. He lifted up her shirt and sucked on the child’s chest.
The man is also accused of touching the child inappropriately through her clothes.
The man is being held in the Thurston County Jail.
