An Anderson man was arrested Wednesday, the result of a four month investigation into the molestation of a young girl.

The Anderson Problem Oriented Policing Unit served a search warrant at the home of 20-year-old Andrew Kyle Richardson around 8 a.m.

Richardson had been under investigation since July, when authorities received a tip about the alleged molestations from the victim’s parents.

Anderson police say the child involved is under the age of 14, and the alleged molestations happened in June 2015. Officials say that due to the victim’s young age and the extremely sensitive nature of this case, further information is being withheld at this time.

Richardson has been booked into the Shasta County Jail on suspicion of committing multiple counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor.
