An 18-year-old woman told police that a 41-year-old man touched her inappropriately when she was between 13 and 14, and on Sunday, he was arrested, a police spokesman said.

William John Brown of Prescott Valley was charged with one count of child molestation, Sgt. Brandon Bonney said.

The woman reported that Brown had sexual contact with her "numerous times" and that the first incident happened in 2007, Bonney said.

Investigators "developed information that gave them probable cause to believe that Brown committed the crime," Bonney said.

He's being held without bond at the Camp Verde jail.
