Mohave County, Ariz. (KTNV) -- 29-year-old Eduardo Juarez of Needles, Calif., has been arrested for molestation of a child and child abuse by Mohave County Sheriff's Office detectives.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the Valley View Medical Center on Sunday in reference to a child molestation report.

The victim's mother told sheriff's deputies that a family friend had inappropriately touched her 9-year-old daughter the previous night and that morning.

Juarez willingly came to the sheriff's office on March 12. He denied involvement but he was arrested and booked into jail.
