Manchester man is jailed on charges of abusing 9-year-old

September 21, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Manchester man was being held yesterday in lieu of $15,000 bail after he was arrested on charges of sexually abusing a 9-year-old girl for the past year, court records show.

The 35-year-old man is not being named to protect the privacy of the child.

In court documents, investigators from the Carroll County Child Abuse Sexual Assault unit said the girl told her mother Saturday about inappropriate touching in the man's bedroom and in a shed outside his home.

After obtaining a search warrant, police went to the man's home Monday and confiscated unspecified items from the house and the shed, investigators said.
