A 69-year-old Bradenton man was arrested Tuesday on child molestation charges, the sheriff’s office reports.
Robert Young inappropriately touched a 5-year-old in July while inside the child’s home, according to the report. The mother of the victim was home at the time and thought her son was alone in his room watching television when the incident happened.
The victim told his mother of the molestation over a month later, she immediately told law enforcement.
In a forensic interview last month, the victim told authorities about Young’s actions, the report said.
