An Elkhart man is behind bars on charges he molested a young relative.
Jewell Dee Riley, 72, faces one count of felony child molesting.
According to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth, the incident involved a 10-year-old girl, and happened at Riley’s Osolo Road home.
Riley was apparently watching the child after school while the child’s mother was at work.
During interviews, the victim told police about several incidents.
Court documents say Riley is under hospitalization, but it’s not clear why.
He’s set to appear in court after his release from the hospital.
