Glendale police have arrested a man in connection with child molestation allegations, according to court documents.
Police began investigating the case Thursday after a runaway told them her father touched her in June 2009 when she was about 12 years old, a probable cause statement said.
The girl told police she was sleeping on the couch when she woke up to her drunk father touching her inappropriately. She confided in her sister, who said the same thing happened to her, the statement said.
The girls went to stay at their grandmother’s home, the filing said.
The father willingly came to the police station later Thursday night and told police he was drunk that night and didn’t remember what happened, but he didn’t think his daughters would have made it up, according to the statement.
He later admitted to touching one of his daughters, the statement said.
Police recommend child molestation and sexual abuse charges.
The Republic is withholding the man’s name to protect the identity of his daughters.
