FORT MYERS, Fla.- The Lee County Sheriff's office is investigating allegations that a church volunteer molested a young boy on two separate occasions.
Robert Little, 74, a former volunteer at Saint Francis Xavier Church, is in the Lee County jail.
Little told investigators that he has been a eucharist minister for several years. There is no word yet on whether he became aquainted with the young boy at the church.
The child told his parents that on two separate occasions he was molested by Little at his Fort Myers Beach condo. One time, the child explained that while in the pool with Little, the 74-year-old allegedly pulled the childs swim trunks forward so that he could look down to see the childs genitals. On a separate occasion, the child says he was inappropriately touched by Little while the child was naked in the bathroom.
In court this morning, Little went before a judge, facing charges of lewd and lascivous behavior.
Little is currently being held on $10,000 bond.
