New Port Richey, FL (February 14, 2019) – On Wednesday, a 48-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl and is now facing two charges of sexual battery of a minor under the age of 12.
The girl spoke with a deputy about what 48-year-old Kevin Norman did to her. She claimed that the incidents took place over the past two weeks and both of these incidents occurred before the child went to school.
Norman also spoke with deputies and told them that he wrestles with the girl and that it might have “accidentally” resulted in inappropriate contact with the child.
Norman has since been booked into the Pasco County Jail and has been held without bail since this morning.
Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
