De­tec­tives are look­ing into an ac­cu­sa­tion of child mo­lesta­tion re­ported early Fri­day morn­ing.

Two women came into the po­lice depart­ment to re­port that their fam­ily mem­ber and her 6-year-old daugh­ter had met them at Mcdon­ald’s in Cony­ers and the woman’s sis­ter re­ported to them that she had re­turned home to find the 6-year-old in the bed with her grand­fa­ther.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, she said she asked the child’s grand­fa­ther why the lit­tle girl only had her panties on and he said he had told the child to put some clothes on.

When the woman took her daugh­ter into the bathroom for a bath she no­ticed her pri­vate area ap­peared red. She asked the child if any­one had

touched her and the girl re­port­edly said she didn’t know and couldn’t re­mem­ber. The com­plainant told de­tec­tives that af­ter ev­ery­one ate their meal and she had heard her sis­ter’s story, she ap­proached her 6-year-old niece and asked her if any­one had touched her in­ap­pro­pri­ately or if “Grandpa” had ever touched her. The girl al­legedly replied that she didn’t know and couldn’t re­mem­ber, but said “he might have.”

The case is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
