PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested a Gardens of Gulf Cove man for inappropriately touching an eight-year-old girl. Harry Ernest Clements, 64, of 13601 Isabell Avenue was charged with Lewd or Lascivious Molestation.

CCSO received a call Oct. 26 reporting Clements inappropriately touched the girl. Detectives met with the parents and the child who said the incident occurred about six weeks ago. Clements could not be located at the time as he was possibly avoiding being questioned about the incident. The parents brought their daughter to the CCSO Forensic Interviewer; the girl identified Clements as the man who inappropriately touched her.

Wednesday, detectives finally located Clements. He denied any and all allegations; however, based on the information gathered, he was arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail where he is being held without bond.
