The girl told police Elgez had her lie down on his bed, and he then molested her. She said it happened sometime this summer at his home.

According to police, the girl's mother flagged down an officer on Sept. 29 to report the incident.

The girl apparently told her best friend about it and she told her mother, who told the victim's mother.
