A man is behind bars for two counts of child molesting.
Terre Haute Police arrested 24-year-old Joshua Schatz at around 1:30 a.m. Friday morning.
Police say that he molested a 2-year-old girl he was babysitting.
When the victim’s family found out and called police, Schatz reportedly tried to run away and fell off the front porch in the process.
The victim’s grandmother told police she tried to stop him and during the struggle, she struck him twice on his face.
Schatz then remained at the home until police arrived.
According to the police report, Schatz admitted to detectives that he had molested the girl another time about a month ago.
Police arrested Schatz on two counts of child molesting.
He’s being held in the Vigo County Jail on $50,000 bond.
