JASPER, IN (WFIE) -

Authorities in Dubois County say a man has been arrested on child molesting charges.

Jasper Police say 23-year-old Jacob H. Brewer was arrested Wednesday on a charge of Child Molesting, a Class C Felony.

Police say the arrest stems from a complaint filed that alleged Brewster touched a 6-year-old girl inappropriately.

Officials say the alleged victim and her mother were living with Brewster at the time, but are not related.

Authorities say during the arrest they found that Brewster had an outstanding warrant for theft, a Class D Felony. Police say those charges stem from a complaint that Brewster stole lottery tickets from a gas station while he was an employee.
