A Stock Island man was arrested Tuesday, charged with molesting a young boy.
Major Crimes Detective Lissette Zuelch investigated the case against 26 year old Robert Morales. The conclusion of her investigation was that Morales sexually molested a six year old boy. The boy told family members what happened.
The Sheriff’s Office became involved when a family member of the victim first confronted then punched Morales. When deputies responded to the disturbance they were told about the molestation accusations.
Florida law prohibits anyone from identifying the victim in this case, or from disclosing any information which might identify him.
Morales was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child. His bond is set at $500,000.
