A 50-year-old man was accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl about 10 to 20 times.
Michael Morrison, 50, of Jamaica, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on one felony charge of lewd or lascivious molestation.
Port St. Lucie police said in August the child and her mother came to the Police Department after the girl cried and told her mother Morrison had touched her inappropriately, and that he had done so 10 to 20 times in the past.
The girl told officers she asked Morrison to stop, but he refused.
Morrison told officers he had been drinking and didn’t mean to inappropriately touch the girl.
