LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's deputies arrested Andres Sanchez Garcia for lewd and lascivious behavior after he reportedly molested an 11-year-old victim.

The Department of Children and Families received a report on their abuse hotline on March 20th. The victim told investigators the molestation began in December 2013 or January 2014, when Sanchez Garcia began holding her hand and kissing her. She said he knew that she was in fifth grade, but would still touch her inappropriately.

In March, after Sanchez Garcia had babysat the victim, her mother said found her outside crying, but she did not want to talk. The victim eventually told her what had been happening.

The victim said Sanchez Garcia would ask if she loved him and would tell her that he wanted to have sex with her. He allegedly said not to tell anyone.

The suspect was located at his residence, but he requested his attorney and did not want to be interviewed.

Sanchez Garcia was arrested and transported to the Lee County Jail.
