A Columbus man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly molesting a child.
Charlie Ed Vance, 52, of 612 Forrest Blvd., faces one count of molesting-touching a child for lustful purposes after a woman reported Vance had been touching her child inappropriately.
Columbus Police Chief Fred Shelton said the victim's mother reported Vance earlier this month but said the touching happened multiple times over an extended period. The victim is between the ages of 10 and 15.
Shelton said Vance knows the victim and the victim's family.
Vance has been released from custody on $50,000 bond.
