HAYTI, MO  (KAIT) – A southeast Missouri man was arrested on charges of child molestation after a young girl came forward, according to Hayti Police Chief Paul Sheckell.

Sheckell said Ricky England Junior, 18, was arrested Tuesday without incident.

According to Sheckell, an 11-year-old girl told police that England touched her inappropriately. The information was handed to the Missouri Department of Human Services.

DHS conducted an interview with the girl, and handed the investigation over to the prosecuting attorney.

England was charged with first degree child molestation and given a $50,000 bond. He's being held in the Pemiscot County Detention Center.
