PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northern Arizona say a Prescott Valley man has been accused of molesting a young girl.

Prescott Valley police said Thursday that 19-year-old Chaun Tyler Sewell is being held in the Yavapai County Jail on suspicion of 1 count of child molestation.

Authorities say Sewell is accused of inappropriately touching a 4-year-old girl that he knew.

The girl's father told police that he walked into a room and allegedly saw Sewell with his hand down the girl's pants.

The man briefly scuffled with Sewell before police arrived at the home.

Police say Sewell allegedly admitted involvement in the offense and was arrested.

They didn't immediately know Thursday if Sewell has a lawyer yet.
